11th Annual Knights of Columbus Poster Contest


submitted by Richard Savoy, Youth Director, Kemptville Knights of Columbus Council 5333

Over the past several years, many fraternal organizations, businesses, schools, churches, synagogues and individuals have donated their time and money to the fight against the ever-present epidemic of substance abuse. One way to rectify this worldwide problem is through the spread of information. Increasing public awareness concerning the dangers of drugs and alcohol through co-operation of individuals and organizations has garnered significant results.

I would like to thank all the schools that participated in our 11th Annual Poster contest. We had over 100 posters with only 4 winners. The Kemptville winning posters move on to Kingston for more judging and the possibility of moving on to Toronto.
