Marcy student earns third place in anti-drug poster contest

Marcy Elementary School fifth-grader Josh Bembenek earned the third place award in the 14th Annual Waukesha County District Attorney’s Office Anti-Drug Abuse Poster Contest. The contest is open to all 5th- through 8th-grade students throughout Waukesha County.

Bembenek will receive a $50 savings bond and a certificate as a result of his winning entry which will be featured in the 2004 full-color, anti-drug calendar sponsored by the Waukesha County District Attorney’s Office. The savings bond and printing of the calendar were made possible through the donations of Waukesha County businesses including the Waukesha State Bank, Delzer Lithograph and Quad/Graphics.

Bembenek will be honored at an awards ceremony Nov. 20 beginning at 7 p.m. in the County Board Room of the Waukesha County Courthouse, 515 W. Moreland Blvd., Waukesha.

Marcy art teacher is Suzan Markham, who has submitted at least one winning entry of her students’ work in each of the past four years. Markham has students create a poster with an antidrug message in art class and submits the pieces for the contest.
