Two fifth-graders, both in the same class at Zippel Elementary School in Presque Isle, have won a poster contest put on by the Maine Elks Association.

Gavin Halley and Victoria Casey, both students in Mrs. June Hoffses fifth-grade class at Zippel submitted posters judged to be the best in the State. They participated in the Maine Elks Association’s Drug Awareness poster contest held throughout the state in February.

The theme for the poster contest was “Drugs Take Away________,” where the students filled in the blank with their own words

Gavin and Victoria will be honored at the Maine Elks Association convention in Lewiston, on May 4.
