JANUARY 22, 2014 THE PRESS PAGE 5 Local sixth help to educate on the dangers of secondhand smoke. GRAFTON, N.D. -- Walsh County Health District is pleased to announce the winners of the Seventh An- nual Walsh County Secondhand Smoke Poster Contest. Sixth graders in Walsh County were invited to partici- pate in a classroom experience, learning about the dan- gers of Secondhand Smoke and then transforming that knowledge into creative, eye-catching poster displays that can help educate their peers and the public. They also learned about the Big Tobacco Industry and how tobacco companies are marketing their products to the younger generation. The students were very creative with their posters, dis- playing a wide variety of ideas and beautiful artwork in their school hallways. Our judges saw poster ideas rang- ing from the increased health risks caused by second- hand smoke such as cancers, asthma, allergies, headaches, ear infections, and other lung diseases to the new state law that uses signs to prevent secondhand smoke exposure in public places to big tobacco marketing tactics such as candy flavored tobacco products. These sixth grade students are helping to spread the word that there is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke. This school project presents a wonderful opportunity for the public to view these posters and be reminded to never smoke around children, especially in homes or vehicles whether the child is present at the time or not. The poster contest has one grand prize winner for all participating sixth graders from Walsh County. This year, our grand prize winner was Julia Sveen from Park Riv- erArea Public School. In addition, each school also has a first prize winner. This year's first prize winners in- elude: Kaitlynn Scherr (Park RiverArea Public School), Dylan Rasmusson (Fordville-Lankin School), Annah Zik- mund (Minto Public School), and Logan Dusek (Grafbn Public School). Walsh County Health District would like to congratulate the winners of the poster contest and thank all the students and teachers for their continued support and participation in this annual event.

He said that they are going to run cameras through the sewer lines to see if there is damage or cracks and take care of both projects at the same time to avoid digging twice. The engineer's estimate the full project, Larson said, at around $3.9 million, which includes repairing lines for water and sewer.

Though plans are in the works for pipes to go in this year and the tower to be constructed next year, Stenvold said that he is not done yet. He said he plans to continue to push to try to get the state to provide additional funding with a goal of at least 75 percent. He said that there is money out there and it should be used with one goal to "build up the state."
