Poster contest warns against dangers of drugs

PARRSBORO – It’s hard to recall how long the annual poster contest has been taking place at Parrsboro Regional Elementary, but the message has remained timeless: drugs are bad. 

Parrsboro Lions (back from left) Rob Bentley, Sarah and Frank Hartman met with the winners of the Lions-sponsored drug awareness poster contest. From left are Rylee McLean, Mackenzie Wagstaff, Renee Meekins, Connor Campbell, Erin Trottier, and Abby Fulton. Missing from the photo was Lion Sharlene Lake, who played a key role in organizing this year’s contest with Parrsboro Regional Elementary.

And just as in previous years, the Parrsboro Lions Club supported this year’s contest with cash prizes for the top tier of participating students.

“This one of three projects we do with the schools,” Lion Frank Hartman explained. “We also do a peace poster contest and Speak Out. It’s our way of showing Lions do care about having positive youth developments in our community.”

“We’ve been doing it for years,” King Lion Rob Bentley said. “Especially anything that raises drug awareness.”

The annual Lions Club drug awareness poster contest leaves the creative process up to the students, so long as the subject relates to creating awareness and the dangers of improper use of drugs and alcohol.

This year the choice students were selected from the grade 3 class and then best overall from Grades 4, 5 and 6.

Recipients this year were:

Grade 3

1st – Mackenzie Wagstaff

2nd – Renee Meekins

3rd – Rylee Mclean


Best overall Grades 4-6

1st Abby Fulton

2nd Erin Trottier

3rd Connor Campbell
