Goshen — Caitlin Klingle of Warwick was the first-place winner in the Orange-Ulster BOCES Career and Technical Education Center’s 18th annual poster contest for the Great American Smoke Out. This is the 18th year that students in Visual Arts Careers Academy have taken part in a poster-designing contest sponsored by the Orange County Department of Health and POW’R Against Tobacco. This year’s theme was “If Tobacco Ads told the Truth,” and was intended to encourage consumers to be aware of how tobacco ads do not tell the entire story and know that actual advertisements may not include all the risks involved with using their product. Klingle’s unique artwork will be used by the Orange County Health Department in its anti-smoking campaigns throughout the year. The second-place award went to Tamara DelBoccio of Marlboro while Gina Hendry of Warwick captured third place. The students created the posters under the direction of their instructors: Derek Diaz and Madeline Lennon.
