The School District of Palm Beach County along with its community partners recently held the Project SMART Alcohol Prevention Poster Contest Awards Ceremony where the six District winners received their awards and were recognized for their talent.
The top six posters (two each from elementary, middle, and high school) are being displayed on all district school buses. Winners received $100 each, in addition to Adobe Photoshop software.
Over 770 Palm Beach County students from 67 schools submitted entries to the Second Annual Alcohol Prevention Poster Contest. Their posters promote a clear educational message encouraging an alcohol-free lifestyle for youth.
