DHS senior Dylan Graves’ design incorporates the slogan, “Let Your Imagination be Free of Drugs,” with a design featuring a profiled silhouette of a head with brightly colored arrows emerging from the top of the head, and the words, “The Choice 4 Me is Drug Free,” encircling the head.
The competition was open to all 22 Elks lodges in New Mexico.
Deming also had the second-place winner. A design created by DHS junior Becky Gallosa was the runner-up choice in the statewide contest.
Both Graves and Gallosa received iPad minis and t-shirts as prizes.
Drug awareness is one of the programs promoted by the New Mexico Elks Association and the local lodge.
