VFW Post 9221 and Ladies Auxiliary sponsor a "Just Say No to Drugs" coloring book and poster contest for Cedaredge Elementary students each year. First through fourth graders completed a four-page coloring book.
There were 40 entries in this category.
Fifth through eighth graders were encouraged to enter posters pertaining to non-use of drugs and tobacco products. Twelve entries were given to be judged. Members appreciate the local schools participating in these contests and encourage even more participation in coming years.
Awards, including cash prizes, were presented to the winners at the VFW dinner, held previous to the Feb. 28 meeting.
Entries are judged locally with first place winners advancing to District. Winners there also receive a cash prize.First placers at State and National contests win scholarships.blog comments powered by Disqus
