STERLING – Two students won Nooks in April for their campaign posters to reduce underage drinking.

The winners were Shayla Moorman of Challand Middle School in Sterling and Rio Salas of Rock Falls Middle School.

The students competed in the Five Ways Out poster contest. They were to create an reduce-underage drinking campaign message that included five ways to avoid drinking due to peer pressure.

Moorman’s poster depicted drawings of a cat and dog showing how she would say no if offered alcohol. She suggested having a believable excuse, and explaining why drinking isn’t worth it.

Salas’ poster featured how to say no in five languages. The message was “No matter what language you speak, say no.”

The contest was sponsored by the Capture Your Direction Campaign. Students and teachers voted on the entries.
