POSTER CONTEST RULES

The Elks Drug Awareness Poster Contest was created to help educate children on the dangers of illegal drugs.

 

The Contest is open to children in grades 3, 4 and 5. They are to draw and color a poster, using the theme, “Refuse to Use…You’re Never Alone” on paper or poster board up to 12” X 24” in size (an 8.5”X11” poster is the preferred size).  Participants must draw the posters themselves, but may get ideas from teachers, parents or friends.

 

NO TRADEMARK CHARACTERS ARE ALLOWED.  The theme must appear on the poster. Judging will be based on, closeness to the theme, neatness, originality, and age-appropriateness.

 

DUE DATES:

1.      All posters should be returned to the Lodge Drug Awareness Chairperson by January 7, 2015 to allow plenty of time for judging at the Lodge level. 

2.      The Lodge Chair will send up to three winners, representing the top entry received from each grade level 3, 4, and 5 to the District Drug Awareness Chairperson by February 6, 2015. If entries are only received for two grades then only the top entries from each grade (in this case 2) should be sent to the District Drug Awareness Chairperson.

3.      The District Drug Awareness Chairperson will be responsible for seeing that the entries are judged.  Following judging the top entry from each grade level received will be sent to the State Drug Awareness Chairperson by March 11, 2015.
