Just Say NO to Drugs 2017

Westminster Area Community Awareness Action Team sponsored a "Healthy Me is saying NO to Alcohol, Tobacco and Marijuana" Poster Contest and Essay Contest in conjunction with "Just Say NO to Drugs" week in 38 elementary and middle schools within the City of Westminster and Westminster Public Schools. "Just Say NO to Drugs" week is an opportunity to remind students that they must continue to say "NO" to alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and any other drugs as they enjoy their summer vacation away from school.

Congratulations to the 2017 Contest Winners! Thank you to all of our participants!


Prom & Graduation 2017

Parents Who Host Lose the Most

Parents Who Host Lose the Most ‘Don’t Be a Party to Teenage Drinking’ Campaign: Letters and parent/teen contracts are sent each year to the parents (1431 letters in 2017) of Juniors and Seniors of Westminster High School students and all parents at Hidden Lake High School. A contract is included for teen and parent to discuss promises to each other on drug/alcohol free prom and graduation celebrations, not riding with an impaired driver, and the parent providing a safe, drug and alcohol free environment for him/her and their friends. In 2015, some students brought in the contracts signed by themselves and their parents when they bought their prom/after-prom tickets.

As part of the 2016 student anti-drug campaign at Westminster High School the students who brought in a contract with completed signatures received a $10 discount on their prom ticket. There were 295 contracts submitted with signatures out of 425 tickets sold for prom/after prom party. 300 students attended the after prom party. A $10 discount has been offered again in 2017.

The letters are available for download HERE in both English and Spanish.
