      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.   On the back of each artwork entry, includestudent's first and last name, school name, school address and phone number and teacher's name. Submissions lacking this information will be disqualified. (Some teachers find it easiest to print labels).
4.   To meet printing standards, each artwork 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.
  • Design must be in portrait format only, not landscape.
  • 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 (i.e.—Pokemon, Disney characters, wrestlers, athletes, etc.).  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. 
7.  Please include your completed Artwork Submission Form with your students’ entries.
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 mailed by December 7, 2020 to:
