STATE REPRESENTATIVE TONY DALE JOINTS EFFORT TO COMBAT UNDERAGE DRINKING WITH $10,000 POSTER CONTEST

AUSTIN – State Representative Tony Dale is teaming up with the Texas Hospitality Association (THA) to fight underage drinking and to promote alcohol responsibility through a statewide poster contest that will award four 2013 graduating high school seniors $10,000 in educational scholarships.

THA will award a $5,000 scholarship to the Texas high school senior who submits the best poster conveying the message or theme: “If you are under 21, it’s illegal to consume or purchase alcoholic beverages in Texas.” A $2,500 scholarship will go to 2nd place, $1,500 for 3rd place and $1,000 for 4th. The winning posters will be used in a statewide alcohol awareness campaign.

“We are very excited about involving Texas high school seniors in developing a message that will combat underage drinking in their age group and reminds all Texans of the need for alcohol awareness,” said Representative Dale.

The contest is open to all 2013 Texas high school seniors. Artwork must be an original design and may be computer or electronically generated, hand drawn or photographed. Students have until May 3rd to submit their poster to THA.
