YAVAPAI COUNTY – A Camp Verde student was grand-prize winner in the MATFORCE anti-drug campaign, and her artwork will be on local pizza boxes.

MATFORCE partners with several pizza restaurants across Yavapai County to promote the decision to avoid illegal drugs and stay healthy during Super Bowl weekend. Milayana Freeman’s anti-drug poster won the annual Youth Poster Contest last year and will be one of those used to create pizza box toppers.

This partnership shows these businesses’ support of our coalition and work to create healthier communities,” Executive Director Merilee Fowler stated in a news release Friday, which happens to be National Pizza Day.
