FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Knights Of Columbus Substance Abuse Awareness Contest Winners Announced at their May 7, 2019 meeting:

The Knights of Columbus, South Plainfield Council, #6203, awarded first place prizes for their annual Substance Abuse Awareness Contest to four winners, Sophia Colucci, Nicole Swatko, Tyson Crudup and Jerry Shang on the evening of May 7, 2019 at the Knights of Columbus Columbian Hall. Each student was presented with a $50.00 check from the Knights of Columbus.

The judging was done by South Plainfield Police Officer and L.E.A.D. Instructor, Zac Melanson, Debbie Boyle, South Plainfield Board of Education, Knights of Columbus Family Director, Tom Walsh, of South Plainfield Council #6203.

A special thanks goes out to Debbie Boyle who distributed the poster rules & entry forms to all South Plainfield public schools and Officer Zac Melanson for engaging the South Plainfield students and Tom Walsh for being the chairperson for the contest.

Joe Wilkowski, Grand Knight and the rest of the Knights would also like to thank all of the students who participated in the poster contest. There were many very good entries this year and the judges had a hard time narrowing it down to the four winners.

It is important for the students to learn the perils of Alcohol and Drug Abuse and these students expressed what that truly meant to them through their creative poster entries.

The Knights of Columbus look forward to next year’s poster contest entries.
