A Brock High School student has been selected as one of the finalists in the third annual ‘Think of Me’ campaign by the DRPS, LCBO and local school boards.
The program sees students from across Durham Region decorating brown paper bags with powerful anti-drinking and driving messages.
“Customers at the LCBO will see their holiday purchases wrapped in these powerful messages in hopes they think twice about getting behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated,” reads a media release.
“In the campaign’s first year in 2016, DRPS Whitby School Liaison Officer Constable Jason Cockburn worked with an LCBO Store Manager, Don Oliver, to distribute blank brown paper bags to schools and more than 5,000 bags were created. The program has grown over the years and this year, more than 40,000 decorated bags will be in circulation in Durham Region.”
An entry created by Lia Canavan, a Grade 12 student at Brock, was selected as one of the five finalists for area high schools and her work will be showcased during a launch event in Oshawa Tuesday (Dec. 3).
“One of the finalists will be chosen as the winning entry and that student will win prizes and their school will be the host school for next year’s launch,” the media release reads.
