Posters promote drug-free message

November 22, 2004

As part of the National Red Ribbon Week celebration Oct. 23 to 31, students at Lincolnshire and Maugansville elementary schools created posters with drug-free messages for display in their schools.

The students' posters were designed to deliver a smart, drug-free choice for adults and students.

The student in each school with the winning poster received a $25 gift certificate to Borders Books and Music.

Second-place winners received a knapsack or gym bag.

Third-place winners received a sweatshirt or T-shirt.

Students earning honorable mention received pens, T-shirts, flying discs or a football.

The contest was sponsored by the Washington County Coalition to Prevent Underage Drinking and Prevention Services of the Washington County Health Department.

More than 600 students participated in Red Ribbon Week activities at both schools.
