A 5th grade class at South Roxana Elementary School is getting a pizza party today. Savannah Squires was the 5th grade winner of a popular anti-drug poster contest run in conjunction with Red-Ribbon Week in Madison County.  Students in grades 3-5 county-wide entered, with the promise of the winner's class getting a pizza party.

Madison County State's Attorney Tom Gibbons tells The Big Z there were plenty of submissions for this school year's contest; the theme was "Respect Yourself. Be Drug-Free."

Held every October since 1986, the Red-Ribbon campaign is one of the largest drug-prevention campaigns in the country.
