Sussex County - More than 800 elementary- and middle-school students throughout Sussex County entered the “What’s Your Anti-Drug” contest, sponsored by the Sussex County Coalition for Healthy and Safe Families, a program of the Center for Prevention and Counseling in Newton. The contest kicked off Red Ribbon Week, when people pledge to stay drug free and join the fight against drug use. The contest encourages children to think about the people or things in their lives that help keep them drug free. Hundreds of “anti-drugs” were named among the entries, including soccer, reading, cheerleading, school, siblings, art, dance, best friends, pets, and grandpa.
