PERRY COUNTY – The Perry County Prosecutor’s Office has announced winners of the 2014 Drug and Alcohol Awareness Poster Contest. The contest was open to all Perry County students in grades kindergarten through seventh.

A panel consisting of a member from the Perry County Substance Abuse Committee, a member of the local Fraternal Order of Police, the Victims Advocate and the Perry County Prosecutor judged each poster that was submitted. The designs were to be original and to deliver a clear message about the theme. Students could use any media, including: pencil, crayon, marker, watercolor, paint, chalk, ink, etc.

The Grand Prize Winner is Dylan Young, a 5th grader at Myers Elementary School, Cannelton. Young’s grand-prize winning poster was chosen from all submitted entries and will be displayed on a billboard at 12th and Rueben Streets in Tell City during the month of August 2014.
