Third place — “End the Stigma – Call 227TALK”: Stessy Louis

These students were honored at a special ceremony at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola.

As part of Red Ribbon Week in October, the contest asked students in grades nine through 12 to create a 30-second PSA. To raise awareness about the dangers of illegal and prescription drugs, 125 students from nine different high schools as well as Nassau BOCES Westbury Center participated in the contest.

Congratulations to these South High School students for earning top honors in the contest!
