Anti-Smoking Poster Contest Winners to be Announced

(Friday, May 27, 2005) -- Winners of the Mainland North Drug Awareness Committee’s “Grade Six Anti-Smoking Poster Contest” will be announced this morning during a ceremony at City Hall.

District 10 Councillor Mary Wile said the purpose of the contest is to raise awareness among young people and others of the harmful dangers of involvement with drugs. It’s open to students of feeder schools in District 10, 15, and 16, as well as Brookside Junior High School.

Each student who submits a poster receives a certificate and a swim pass to Needham, Northcliffe, or the Spryfield Wave Pool. First, second, and third place posters will be named for each school, and then First Place posters will judged for the grand prize of a bike and helmet.

The Mainland North committee was recently presented with the RCMP "H" Division Drug Awareness Service Award for taking a Leadership Role in a Community. This award was presented at the Addiction, Prevention and Treatment Services volunteer recognition dinner held earlier this month.

In addition, the Mainland North Drug Awareness Committee gives the "Healthy Lifestyle Award" (bursary) to a graduating high school student each year.
