On behalf of the Delaware County Office of Behavioral Health, Division of Drug and Alcohol Programs, Holcomb Behavioral Health Systems is excited to announce the 26th annual Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Awareness Student Poster Contest, a countywide contest for all Delaware County students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. The goal of this contest is to encourage all students to value healthy lifestyles and think about the consequences of alcohol, tobacco and other drug use. This tradition is a wonderful way to reinforce school’s prevention programming by involving students in a countywide effort.

Thank you to all the schools/organizations who submitted posters for the 2013 poster contest! Over 1,000 posters were received!

Following the submission deadline, which has been EXTENDED TO: Monday, March 10, 2014, fifteen winning posters will be cumulatively chosen by health professionals and the public through a voting system. In April, the Awards Ceremony will be conducted for the fifteen winners during a County Council Meeting at the Delaware County Government Center in Media.  Each student winner will be recognized by County Council Members, representatives of the Office of Behavioral Health, and by Holcomb Behavioral Health Systems. Following the awards ceremony, each winner will be mailed their VISA Giftcard award, which range in denomination from $75 to $200. The winning posters, along with headshots of the winning students, will be featured in the 2014 Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Awareness Calendar.
