Special to the Courier


Youths from throughout Yavapai County spoke out against underage drinking by entering the MATForce Pizza Box Topper poster design contest. Winning posters will be displayed on pizza boxes for Super Bowl Sunday and throughout February.

The winners are Ava Lee, Grade 1, Coyote Springs Elementary School in Prescott Valley; Kady Anderson, Grade 5, Washington Traditional Elementary School in Prescott; Bryce Carl, Grade 7, American Heritage Academy in Cottonwood; and Grant Bonczek, Grade 11, Prescott High School.

Officer Mike Morris of the Prescott Valley Police Department, a member of the MATForce anti-underage drinking workgroup, said, "As a police officer, I know that underage drinking is a huge problem among youths. I have seen far too many tragedies from what may be viewed as simple youth experimenting. Saying no to underage drinking is an important message for our children. I highly commend all the youths who entered this contest and spoke out against underage drinking. It is so important for youth to make healthful choices for themselves."

MATFarce does not want to protect your children. They want to put your children in jail. Nothing they have done to this day has reduced or prevented or cured drug use. Do you really think one more poster contest, a couple hundred more prison sentences, a few thousand more deaths will make a difference?
