County Attorney announces Anti-Drug Poster Contest winner
FLORENCE, Ariz. (12/5/2018) – The 28th Annual Pinal County Attorney’s Office Anti-Drug Poster Contest wrapped up at the Central Arizona College in Coolidge on Wednesday. County Attorney Kent Volkmer announced the top three winners of the poster contest at the ceremony.
Sixth-grade students in Pinal County were given a month to create a poster with an anti-drug theme. The students had one month starting in September to create a design that educates and engages Pinal’s youth on the importance of being drug-free.
Nearly 1000 students handed in their poster during the contest this year. After receiving all the submissions, PCAO selects the top 40 posters. Three Pinal County Superior Court judges decide which posters make the top ten and select the three best poster ideas. Volkmer congratulated the top-ten students at a pizza party after they make the final round.
What’s at stake? The Pinal County Attorney’s Office gives the Grand Prize winner’s class an educational field trip. The Grand Prize winner also gets their poster printed on t-shirts and students who made it to the top 40 receive those t-shirts. Second place winner has their idea put on notebooks, and the third prize poster idea goes on a bookmark.
Grand Prize Winner:
Legacy Traditional School
