Annual youth art contest combats underage drinking
MATFORCE invites area youth to enter the "Say No to Underage Drinking" Youth Art Contest. Winning entries will receive cash prizes. Participating pizza stores will be attaching the winning posters to the top of their pizza boxes helping raise awareness about underage drinking risks.
MATFORCE's Underage Drinking Taskforce is sponsoring this annual contest. The group includes representatives from schools, government, law enforcement and youth probation. Creating pizza box toppers gives youth a chance to make a healthy choice by speaking out against the harms of underage drinking. The art contest entries must measure 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (half sheet).
The contest will be judged in four age categories, ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade. Winners in each category will receive a $100 Target gift card. Contest deadline is Friday, Dec. 12, at 4 p.m. For contest guidelines visit the MATFORCE website at matforce.org.
