Watkins Glen Freshman Wins Billboard Contest


The winning entry in the second annual Schuyler County Coalition on Underage Drinking and Drugs (SCCUDD) Prom/Graduation Billboard Contest has been selected — a creation (shown above) by Watkins Glen High School freshman Celeste Blodgett.

It was chosen from among 35 entries — all from WGHS. It will appear on a billboard on Rt. 14 in Montour Falls. “Watkins Glen has a great art program,” said SCCUDD spokesman Ward Brower. “I am glad SCCUDD has been able to tap into it.”

The contest is for 7th through 12th graders at WGHS as well as in the Odessa-Montour and Bradford schools, including home-school students. The contest looks for substance abuse prevention messages with a “prom” or “graduation” theme.

The Schuyler County Coalition on Underage Drinking and Drugs is a group of dedicated community members, businesses, and agencies.  Its mission is to prevent, reduce, and delay the onset of substance use among Schuyler County youth by:

  • Collaborating with our community partners
  • Promoting prevention education and substance-free activities
  • Implementing environmental strategies

SCUDD’s vision is a connected community where our youth have education, resources, and drug-free options to help their journey to become happy, healthy adults.
