Columbus Lions announce winners for Drug Awareness Contest

COM_poster contestColumbus Elementary students sent important messages about the negative effects of drugs and alcohol in the annual Drug Awareness poster contest sponsored by the Columbus Lions.

The fourth-grade winners were Hailey Kretsch, first place, Zach Trotto, second, and Riley Jepson, third. Fifth-grade winners were Ryleigh Eischen, first, Ethan Orton, second, and Grace Berthiaume, third.

“It was sobering to see just how truly aware they are about this,” said Lion Bill Monson.

The first-place poster from each grade is entered in the Lions District 5M7 mid-winter convention held in January.
