CARTERSVILLE, GA; May 30, 2012 — Cartersville Medical Center recently announced winners of its “Name the Robot” art contest. Open to all kindergarten through fifth grade elementary school children in Cartersville City and Bartow County, thousands of entries were received. The contest is part of the continuing launch and awareness campaign for the hospital’s new da Vinci® Si™ Surgical System.
The purpose of the contest was to allow a student in the community to be creative, name the new robot and learn how technology advances healthcare delivery. Students were encouraged to draw their perception of how a medical robot would look and to name the robot. Art teachers and administrators from area schools assisted with the successful communication of the contest to their students.
Keagan Williams, fifth grader at Mission Road Elementary School, won the grand prize for “Leonardo”, including an award ribbon and $100 cash.
Taking first place honors were:
3rd – 5th grade category: Jordan Crook, fourth grader at Pine Log Elementary School, for “Medibot 2000”
