Local dentist’s ‘Good Deed’ contest is back

By The Mercury

Manhattan dentist, Dr. Roger Stevens, Dentistry by Design, launched another Good Deed contest in Nov. 2011.

The contest will run until April 30. To enter the contest, children need to write an essay about a good deed they have accomplished.

A brand new computer will be given to the child who submits the best essay.

The winner of the first contest, Quillyn Smith, made quilts for orphans in China.

Stevens started the contest as a way to promote good deeds that go un-rewarded.

“We all know that negativity will not improve a situation, but complimenting or rewarding a job welll done will actually prompt more of those good activities,” he said.
