TEMECULA – The Temecula Valley Elks Lodge 2801 hosted a dinner for their Drug Awareness Contest winners recently. The 15 winners, their parents and their teachers were invited to attend, to be recognized and to be presented with framed certificates.

The contest materials were distributed to the elementary schools and middle schools through Peachjar, a web-based flyer distribution company for schools and organizations, during the first week of October in the Murrieta and Temecula area. There were three contests – a poster contest for third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students; an essay contest for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students and a video contest for pre-high school, high school and post-high school students. The topic for all three contests was "Drugs Take Away..." First-, second- and third-place awards were presented to the poster and essay winners. First- and second-place awards were given to the video winners.
