Students at Fort Riley Middle School participated in an art contest, sponsored by ASAP (Army Substance Abuse Prevention) at Fort Riley. The theme of the contest was “Be Drug Free”. One student from each grade was chosen to receive a Kindle Fire for their creative artwork. After much deliberation, Nicole Sizemore, Prevention Branch Chief at ASAP, presented the Kindles to the students at Fort Riley Middle School.
Joseph Rippey, the contest winner for sixth grade, said he used legos in his piece because his hobby is building things. His artwork read, “Don’t Build Your Way Into Drugs”. Alexis Schneider, the seventh grade winner, chose to us doors as a way to represent “Your Future is Key, So Stay Drug Free”. AnnaBella Lind, the eighth grade winner, drew a time machine for her piece titled “Leave Drugs Behind”.
USD 475 would like to thank the ASAP organization at Fort Riley who sponsors these art contests annually during 3D months (Drugged Drunk Driving Awareness). Congratulations to the winners of the contest!
