Artwork created by a Brock High School student was selected one of the top entries in the third annual ‘Think of Me’ campaign by the DRPS, LCBO and local school boards.
Lia Canavan, a Grade 12 student, was selected as the winning entry amongst high school students at a launch event in Oshawa Tuesday (Dec. 3).
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.”
