Minnesota D.A.R.E.’s Kathi Ackerman is happy to announce the 2021 Minnesota D.A.R.E. Winning Posters.

Kathi said, “Throwing out the opening pitch at the Minnesota Twins/D.A.R.E. game on September 26th will be Lucy from Chatfield Elementary. Her DARE Officer is Kevin Landorf with the Chatfield Police Department.

“Lucy’s poster (above) was selected because it was very timely and a very important way of giving during 2020/21 for the students. This year’s contest was D.A.R.E. to Give.

“There were so many really good posters. I would like to keep them throughout the year, if possible, so I can post them weekly on Facebook. If you need your posters back sooner, let me know.

“Watch our Facebook page for your posters!!
