Ladue Horton Watkins High School senior David Streid was recognized on Thursday, Dec. 15, 2011 for his entry. The photograph entitled “from ashes” was submitted in the “Share the Truth About Tobacco” multimedia competition, sponsored by the Saint Louis County Department of Health (DOH).
The contest was the creation of the DOH Let’s Face It youth initiative, called AirO2Dynamic. All local youth were challenged to creatively express anti-tobacco messages. Entries were accepted from St. Louis County middle and high school-aged students in four categories: photography, video, poetry/lyrical and digital art. In addition to the DOH, the contest was supported by community partners Better Family Life, the St. Louis Blues and the St. Louis Cardinals.
The awards program will begin at 7:00 p.m. on in the J.C. Penney Conference Center Auditorium on the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) campus and is free to all who attend.
