Anti-Drug Drawing Earns Ames Student First Place

Erin G., a ninth grader at Massapequa High School’s Ames Campus, was the first place winner in Drug Free Long Island’s 2019 poster contest in the grades 9-12 division. Erin’s poster was submitted by her studio in art teacher, Tildy Becker-DeLuca. It featured a drawing of a roulette wheel with the names of different drugs and the slogan, “Don’t play roulette with your life.” Erin, who created the poster in April, said she wanted to highlight the risk that people take when doing any kind of drug.
