The Bay Village Kiwanis have once again honored the winners of the Bay Middle School Drug Education & Awareness Poster Contest. All eighth-grade students recently completed a drug awareness education program and were invited to submit hand-made posters to the contest. Winning students were recognized for their creativity and messaging.  

Said Kiwanian Jim Potter, “We believe it is important for all kids, especially those in middle school, to learn about the harm of drug and alcohol use. Studies show delaying experimentation and resisting use at a young age has a dramatic effect on children as they get older. We’re glad we can be involved.”  

Winning students received gift certificates and all the posters were put on display in the cafeteria.
