TODAY - before lunch - you get to win treats and test your knowledge about the risks/statistics of alcohol use. Before lunch today, magnets will be placed on random lockers throughout the halls. Each magnet will contain a question about the risks of alcohol use. There will be a table set up in the commons during lunch where, if you answer your question correctly, you can win treats. Be on the lookout for the magnets and remember, just because the magnet is on someone else’s locker, doesn’t mean you can’t go for it. This contest is first come, first served. This is sponsored by Piatt County Mental Health.
