The competition is a good way for me to learn and understand the harmful effects of drug and inhalant abuse (in terms of health, legal consequences and relationships). The competition has helped me learn the heavy penalties of drug abuse and drug trafficking. I know that drugs and inhalants are harmful and will not want to try them. The What You Need To Know About Drugs And Inhalants information sheet (provided with the entry form) was useful. On the whole, the competition was well-organised. The Rules and Regulations were clear and concise. I would like to see CNB conduct an Anti-Drug Essay and Poetry Writing Competition next year.
