Pinal County Attorney's Office kicks off anti-drug poster contest

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  The Pinal County Attorney's Office is calling on all 6th graders in Pinal County, for the 24th annual Anti-Drug Poster Contest.  The anti-drug poster contest is designed to educate and engage Pinal's youth on the importance of remaining drug free now and throughout their lives.  

According to a release from the Pinal County Attorney's Office the top 60 submissions will receive name recognition on the calendar and from there six judges will determine the top nine.  These top nine artists will be treated to pizza party, from the top nine three winners will be chosen - Grand prize, T-shirt and Bookmark.  

Prizes include: Grand prize winner and their class will win a field trip; the T-shirt winner will have their poster printed on T-shirts, while the Bookmark winner will have theirs printed on a bookmark. Both the T-shirt and bookmark will all be distributed throughout Pinal County.  There will be an additional six posters chosen, which will be featured in the Pinal County Attorney's Office Anti-Drug calendar.  

Information about the contest was sent to Pinal County teachers, with additional information coming in the next few weeks.  

All poster submissions are due to the Pinal County Attorney's Office by September 28, with no exceptions.  

"Promoting drug prevention and education in a fun and rewarding manner engages our youth," said Pinal County Attorney Voyles, in a recent release. "With students working with parents and teachers to complete posters, we hope they take the time to talk with their children about the risks and negative effects of drug use. This poster contest lends itself to many educational opportunities and I proudly continue this 24 year old tradition in this County."
