The Coconino County Attorney’s Office held its fifth annual “Live Drug Free” Poster contest with great success, receiving over four hundred posters from 6th grade classes throughout the county.
“This contest is a fun way for kids to integrate the drug free message with creative artwork and promote the drug free lifestyle in our elementary schools. We are thrilled that so many students participated in this year’s contest”, said County Attorney David Rozema.
The contest, held in conjunction with the anti-drug campaign “Red Ribbon Week”, was open to all Coconino county sixth graders. The County Attorney’s Office assembled an eight member selection committee, consisting of police officers and prominent community members. The selection committee had a difficult time narrowing the field, but was eventually able to select the winning posters.
The Grand Prize went to Sydney Marston of the Montessori Charter School. Her art teacher, Ms. Adair, will receive a $300 award to be used for classroom purposes, and her entire class will be going to the Phoenix Art Museum on an all-expense paid field trip. The grand prize poster will be featured on the 2014 Live Drug Free Calendar.
Second prize went to Sarah Van Ess from BASIS Flagstaff and third prize went to Annecy Malone from Mount Elden Middle School. The second prize poster will be printed on t-shirts and the third prize poster will be printed on bookmarks to be distributed around Coconino County.
The winning posters can be seen in the Arizona Daily Sun on Sunday, November 17. The winners will also be announced on KNAU Public Radio throughout the day on Tuesday, November 19.
“We want to thank our sponsors for helping with the expenses for this important project – the Northern Arizona Street Crimes Task Force (METRO), and the Western Navajo-Hopi Meth Task Force”, said Rozema.
The winning posters are on display at the Coconino County Attorney’s Office, located at 110 E. Cherry Avenue in Flagstaff, and on the County Attorney’s website below.
