Press release:

In support of the Genesee County STOP-DWI program, the STOP-DWI Board invites all sixth- through 12th-grade students to submit a poster design that reflects the dangers of drinking and driving.

Designs should focus on the effects drinking and driving have on an individual, their family and the community.

The theme for the 2021 poster contest is, "If you drink it’s your business, if you drink and drive it’s ours.”


  • Contestants must be enrolled as a  sixth- through 12th-grader in a Genesee County School;
  • Poster should be no larger than 9’’ x 12” and must include the theme of: "If you drink it’s your business, if you drink and drive it’s ours”;

  • Each submission should be the original student’s work. Submissions should be mailed or dropped off to the address below;
  • Each entry must include the artist’s full name, address, phone number, grade, age and school on the back of the poster (no personal information should be on the illustration).

Designs can be in any medium, including computer-generated. However, we strongly recommend that students create strong, simple and colorful designs that will deliver the most visual impact for their message.
