Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board Invites K-12 Students to Enter Annual Alcohol Awareness Poster Contest
In an effort to continue the dialogue about the dangers of underage drinking, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) is encouraging students from across the commonwealth to participate in the 27th annual Alcohol Awareness Poster Contest.
“Earlier this year, we unveiled a new alcohol education campaign called Know When, Know How. This campaign teaches parents how to start a conversation with their children about the dangers of underage drinking. Our annual poster contest is an excellent way to continue those conversations,” said PLCB Chairman Tim Holden.
The contest is open to all Pennsylvania students in kindergarten through 12th grade, including those who are home-schooled or in private or parochial schools. Students may enter through their schools, clubs, or scout troops, or individually.
Entries must feature a clear no-use message about underage drinking and may be created using any artistic medium. Students are encouraged to use positive messages and images, such as the benefits of being alcohol free or alternatives to underage drinking.
Each year, approximately 50 posters are selected by a panel of judges for recognition. Each artist who creates a selected poster will be notified of his or her accomplishment and invited to attend a recognition ceremony in Harrisburg in April 2019, which is Alcohol Awareness Month.
Several students will receive $50, and one student from each grade (K-12) will receive $25. Some of the winning designs may be reproduced in various formats and distributed across Pennsylvania.
