The Taney County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office is pleased to announce that Jade Yancy of the Kirbyville School District was the grand prize winner of the 3rd Annual Red Ribbon Week Poster Contest. Besides winning a Nintendo Wii game bundle, her design will be featured on a T-Shirt that will be handed out to all 5th and 6th graders in Taney County during Red Ribbon week this month.

We would also like to thank Representative Ray Weter, Presiding Commissioner Chuck Pennel, and representatives from Senator Jack Goodman’s office for their participation in last night’s festivities. We would also like to thank D.A.R.E officers Steve Huggins, Chris Sims, Matthew Gregory, and Darold Donathan for their hard work and dedication to this and other drug awareness programs in the schools. Finally, we would like to thank the individual school districts and their staff as well as the parents for their support and hard work in making Red Ribbon Week a reality.
