5th Annual Art & Poetry Contest

It’s that time of year again! LEAF is proud to announce we will be having another Art and Poetry Contest on April 24th at the Cano Gallery in the Wilber Mansion! Our theme this year is based on Oneonta’s tagline “Life Enjoyed”. We took that and created a lovely acronym for LEAF: Life Enjoyed Addiction Free to explore the beauty of living a life free of addiction and other self-destructive behaviors. The work does not have to directly reference addiction but should be the artist’s or poet’s interpretation of the theme. Below are links for both the art and poetry guidelines as well as both of the entry forms. If you have any questions please contact us at LEAFArtandPoetry@gmail.com or you can visit our Facebook Page here. We cannot wait to see all the entries! Have fun creating!

Gambling Prevention


Talk with Your Children about Gambling!

Gambling today is more accessible than ever. It is portrayed through television and other media as exciting and easy money. However, gambling can lead to serious problems. Your child needs to know that gambling can easily get out of control and lead to serious losses, not only of money and possessions, but also the loss of trust and respect from family and friends or educational opportunities. Studies show that the earlier a child engages in risky behaviors, the greater the likelihood those behaviors will become problematic.YouthDecideNY_Logo
