Oregon middle-school students are invited to enter artwork for a 2008 calendar that will be used to increase problem gambling awareness.
An estimated 75,000 adult Oregonians experience problems related to their gambling, which also impacts children and families.
Artwork should be entered on white, letter-size paper with the name of the student artist, grade level, school and teacher's name on the back. Entries should be submitted to ODHS's Greta Coe at 500 N.E. Summer St., N.E., E-86, Salem, OR 97301.
Deadline for submissions is March 30.
More detail about the contest, including suggested themes for artwork, is available on the DHS web site. Downloadable information can be found here. Gift certificates ranging from $25 to $100 will be awarded to 12 students and two teachers.
