Drug Awareness Week

 

Drug Awareness Week 2012

 

THROUGHOUT THE WEEK

Share how you make smart decisions everyday regarding your own wellness by using #makeSMARTchoices.  Show your Hawk pride and tell the rest of the community just how smart you are when it comes to drug use - including drugs like caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, prescription drugs and street drugs.  Use this hashtag when you instagram a picture of you at any of the events during the week.  Post about how you helped a friend or how a friend helped you then use this hashtag.   I #makeSMARTchoices by using this hashtag! ;)
