SMTMS TAR WARS CONTEST WINNERS
The Warren County Public Health promotes physical and mental health to prevent disease, injury and disability. Part of this initiative is an annual Tobacco Free Poster Contest. Students can enter a drawing promoting tobacco free communities through education and partnerships. The winning posters are published in the annual Tar Wars Calendar. This year two of our very own SMTMS 4th grade students, Preston Allen III and Cassidy Rose, submitted winning posters and are published in in the 2014 calendar. The drawings are featured on the May and June pages at: www.warrencountyny.gov/healthservices/ click on the 2014tarwarspdf. Congratulations Preston and Cassidy!
