HARRISBURG – Adriana Kopalek, a third-grader at Wycallis Elementary School, is among 50 students statewide named winners of the 24th annual Alcohol Awareness Poster Contest, hosted by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board.
During a ceremony in The State Museum of Pennsylvania on April 5, Kopalek was presented with a Senate Certificate from state Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, recognizing her achievement and wishing her future success. Kopalek is the daughter of Joseph and Brenda Kopalek of Dallas Township.
According to the PLCB, nearly 1300 students from 49 counties across the state participated in this year’s contest, using crayons, ink, colored pencils, paint and computer-generated imagery to create their posters. Their entries were judged on presentation and message. Since the poster contest began in 1992, almost 35,000 entries have been submitted, and thousands more students have participated through projects in their school classrooms.
