Drug Free Poster Contest
Over 30 years ago, the “Drug-Free Art/Calendar” contest was designed to involve children, from kindergarten through high school, in an effort to educate the nation’s youth on the dangers of substance abuse. With the support of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Rural Housing Services, the scope of the competition has increased dramatically and now includes Elderly, Disabled and Special Needs residents. The art/calendar contest is an activity that not only helps to ensure the health and well-being of our residents, but it also goes a long way toward maintaining a positive public perception of your property and community. The project is sponsored by AHMAs throughout the country and NAHMA.
Entries are judged on the artist’s ability to create a submission with the contest theme. While the general purpose of the program is to promote being drug free, the theme for artists to portray on their poster changes each year. This year, the theme is: SHARING OUR STORIES - LEARNING FROM OTHERS, YOUNG AND OLD. Judges consider: INTERPRETATION of the theme Sharing Our Stories - Learning from Others, Young and Old; ORIGINALITY of submission; QUALITY: Is the artwork submission appealing to the eye; OVERALL ARTISTIC ABILITY: Does the artwork submission show some degree of creativity and skill for its age group; REPRODUCTION: Can artwork be reproduced with reasonable quality and clarity.
