Optimist District sponsors poster contest

I think it is a Midwestern phenomenon. The Illinois and Missouri Districts host poster contests for elementary school students to speak out against drugs. The Optimist Club of Grain Valley, Missouri recently displayed their winning posters and artists on their blog. Shown here are Justin Sackman & Abby Hammontree. Justin was also the winner at the district level.

The poster contest is a fairly simple process and one that teachers look forward to each year. Teachers can plan lessons around substance abuse prevention and kids can creatively record what they have learned. The Optimist Club then awards the students on their creativity.

If your district conducts a poster contest, please send me a message and some details of your event. I would love to share the information with others. Thanks!
