Grand Falls Drug Store Essay Contest
In 2005 Grand Falls Drug Store launched an essay contest designed to educate kids about the harmful effect of drugs, from prescription medications to everyday drugs found on the street. By getting kids involved, the objective is to provide the insight and enable kids to be aware of the negative consequences associated with drugs and their abuse.
The essay contest is open to all students from Grades 11 to 12, and cash prizes are awarded as follows :
1st Prize - $500.00
2nd Prize - $300.00
3rd Prize - $200.00
The response and number of participants each year is overwhelming. It shows that getting kids involved at early ages does make a difference, and helps them deal with challenging decisions later on in their lives.
