Polk County, FL -- On Dec. 7, Sheriff Grady Judd, along with Assistant State Attorney, Brad Copley, recognized the winners of the 2011 Drug Prevention Video/Poster Contest.
At the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year, the Polk County Sheriff's Office and the State Attorney's Office (10th Judicial Circuit) sponsored a Drug Prevention Video/Poster Contest within the Polk County public, charter, and private middle/senior high schools.
The video contest rules required students in the audio visual departments of the schools to create a 25-second video containing a drug prevention message, while the poster contest required students in the art departments to create either a hand drawn or digitally created poster, also with a drug prevention message.
