            Poster & Essay Contest 2020

It is with great pleasure that 

The Alcoholism & Drug Abuse Council of Orange County 

announces the

33rd Annual Substance Abuse Prevention Poster Design 


2nd Annual Substance Abuse Prevention Essay Contest   


There were approximately 1,000 plus entries last year for the Poster Contest and the competition was extremely high.


Due to the recent increase in participation, we have decided to split the contest categories to give more students the opportunity to be recognized.


This year’s TWO contest themes are:


1st - 6th grades:

“I Am The Best Me When I Am Alcohol & Drug Free!”


7th - 12th grades:

“The World To Be Can Be Alcohol & Drug Free!”


Students in grades 7 -12 can also choose to enter the

Prevention Essay Contest


This year’s Prevention Essay Contest theme is the same as that of the Poster Contest for this age category:


7th-12th grades:

“The World To Be Can Be Alcohol & Drug Free!”



All winners will be recognized at an awards ceremony in May 2020
