GRAND CANYON, Ariz. - On Feb. 7, three sixth grade students were awarded for their artwork in the second annual Coconino County Attorney's "Live Drug Free" Poster Contest. Presenting the awards were County Attorney David Rozema and assistant Tami Suchowiejko. Mariela Montano won third place. Kyla Pearce came in second and Thlema Montes won first place.
Thank you to art teacher Amy McBroom for encouraging her students to participate.
This year, there were over 600 participants in northern Arizona. The Grand Prize winner wins a field trip for their class to the Phoenix Art Museum. The second place winner wins t-shirts for their class and the third place winner has their artwork placed on a poster and magnets. The criteria used to judge the competition is how well the artist can convey the message to be drug free in a creative way.
