1.  Entries must be based on the theme Fun Things To Do Instead Of Doing Drugs”.

2.  Students must work independently on their submission.  Only one submission per student will be accepted. 

3.  The student's first name and last name, school name, school address and phone number and teacher's name must be written on the back of each submission. Submissions lacking this information will be disqualified. 

4.  As part of the printing process, a photograph is taken of each submission.  To meet printing standards each submission must meet the following criteria:

  • Only white 8 1/2” x 11” copy paper may be used. Do not use construction or colored paper.
  • Use crayons, pens, markers, and pencils.  Any color is acceptable.
  • Please do not use glitter, “sparkle” glue, collages or other media. (They don’t reproduce well.)

5.  No copyrighted characters, images or celebrities may be used or inferred.  This is very important.  Students must depend completely on their own imagination to develop their artwork.  A simple way to explain this is to note that if they have seen it on television or in the movies, it cannot be used (for example; Pokemon, Disney characters, wrestlers, athletes, etc.).  We will not be able to obtain the rights to use any copyrighted characters, images or celebrities’ names.  Any entry that uses a copyrighted character, image or celebrity will be disqualified.

6.  We recommend limiting text to a simple drug-prevention slogan or saying.  Too much writing can clutter the picture.  The focus of the submission should be the artwork. 

Within these guidelines, students should be as creative and original as possible.  We hope that this will be a positive learning experience for all involved and we look forward to seeing all of the submissions. Submissions must be sent by December 8, 2018 to:
