Art contest to fight substance abuse

The deadline to enter the Decisions at Every Turn Coalition’s art contest is Feb. 27. Students in grades 3 to 12 are invited to think of a creative way to convince members of the community not to get involved with alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs. Creativity is encouraged; students can submit posters, videos, songs, or other creative formats. One winner will be selected from each grade and invited to read, perform, or showcase his or her work in a program to be aired on local television. For more information, inquire with a school principal or visit the school district’s website,  www.ashland.k12.ma.us .
