Winners Announced in Teen Drug Prevention Art Contest

A group of Anderson County High School students have made it their goal to help educate their peers and adults about the impact of drugs, alcohol, and other substance abuse by sponsoring an art contest among fellow students.

Members of the Anderson County Saving Our Students Youth Coalition have been working diligently in creating ways to prevent drug abuse as part of its ongoing research project “101 Things to Do Besides Drugs.” One of these ways was sponsoring a Teen Art Contest with drug, alcohol and substance abuse as the contest’s theme.

The contest was open to all high school students in the county and encouraged students to use their artistic talents in creating and producing artwork with positive messages to assist in the fight against drugs and alcohol within the community.

Winners of the art contest were recently selected.  They are:  First Place – Tyler Hawkins (Junior); Second Place – Glenn Overstreet, Jr. (Senior); Third Place – Logan Perkins (Senior); Fourth Place – Chase Gould (Sophomore).

The winning students will be honored at the February S.O.S Youth Coalition meeting, at which time they will receive prizes and medals for their winning art entries.

S.O.S. Youth Coalition is supported by the ASAP (Agency for Substance Abuse Policy) Board of Anderson County.
