Each year, the Pinal County Attorney’s Office sponsors an anti-drug poster contest for sixth-grade students throughout the county. From all of the county submissions, approximately 10 are chosen as finalists to be selected as the grand prize winner, the bookmark winner, or the T-shirt winner for the contest.

This year, Combs Traditional Academy sixth-graders Anissa Deel and Dinay Holmes have been chosen as finalists. Both are students in Amber Sutton’s class.

The girls have the opportunity to attend the special awards ceremony in Florence on Wednesday, Nov. 18, at the Windmill.

They also had an opportunity to enjoy lunch and have their picture taken with Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles Oct. 21 at the Old Pinal County Courthouse in Florence.

Both girls told Ms. Sutton and me that they enjoyed having lunch and meeting the Pinal County attorney. They are both excited to attend the special awards ceremony in November.
