Write a pledge against meth
Police Chief Harry Kubojiri has again asked the Hawaii Police Activities League (HI-PAL) program to reach out to intermediate schools islandwide to engage in a friendly competition to create a pledge against “ice” use.
The winning pledge will be used and uttered by participants before the 32nd Annual Winter Basketball Classic being held Dec. 26-29.
The pledge must be short — three to five sentences — precise and to the point. It must include the phrase “Not Even Once,” which is part of the Hawaii Meth Project’s message to youth.
A representative of the Hawaii Police Department will recognize the winner during the Winter Basketball Classic’s “skills challenge” night on Thursday, Dec 27.
All interested intermediate school students are encouraged to submit a pledge submission along with their name, age, school and grade.
Pledges entries can be submitted by any of the following methods: Drop it off with the school resource officer at your intermediate school or at the HI-PAL office in either Hilo or Kona; mail it to HI-PAL Program, c/o Hawaii Police Dept., 349 Kapiolani Street, Hilo, HI 96720; fax it to 933-4000; or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entry deadline is Friday, Dec. 14.
For more information, please call Officer Joseph Botelho Jr. at 961-2220.
Good luck, and remember: “Not Even Once!”
