CopyCatFun.com First Prize Winner Announced
Children are “copycats” in every way. The Just Like You! positive role modeling campaign was created to remind adults of the impact they have on children. “Make sure that your ‘little copycats’ see positive behaviors to mimic,” said Sandy Miller, Prevention Supervisor at the Garrett County Health Department. “So many kids received mixed messages about tobacco, alcohol and other drug use. We want to help you model positive, heathy behaviors.” CopyCatFun.com displays positive role modeling through a variety of interactive ways. Participants can earn points and win prizes related to healthy behaviors. Pictured above is the first prize winner Elijah DeWitt, and his mother Abby DeWitt, with their healthy prize basket. Just Like You! is sponsored by Garrett County Community Action, Board of Education, and the Health Department and is partially funded by the Behavioral Health Administration and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
