2016 Oregon Problem Gambling Awareness Calendar

Last Spring three Jackson County middle schoolers were selected to have their artwork featured in the 2016 Oregon Problem Gambling Awareness Calendar! Each year the state hosts a Problem Gambling Awareness Art Search for Middle School students. The top 12 submissions are featured in a calendar that is distributed across the state in an effort to spread awareness of the risks of problem gambling.

We are very proud  to announce that three of the top 12 submissions came from Jackson County this year! To participate in the next year’s search, contact the Prevention Coordinator, Emily Mossberg at mossbeej@jacksoncounty.org.
