Project Prevention Champions Sought

The Rice County Chemical Health Coalition needs your help to find and recognize PROJECT PREVENTION CHAMPIONS in our community.  

A Project Prevention Champion is someone who has helped provide support for a healthier life in our community – someone who helps reduce risk factors for alcohol and drug abuse, someone who supports recovery, or builds assets for our youth and other community members.
They can be our friends and neighbors, our teachers, our mentors, our business partners, our police officers, our health professionals or community members.  Please help us recognize and encourage these community leaders by nominating them for a Project Prevention Champion Award.  They will receive the recognition and encouragement they deserve, and others will be inspired by their story.

Nominating a Project Prevention Champion is simple and takes just a few moments. 

1.     Visit the Rice County Chemical Health Coalition website ( to download a nomination form -- see the "News & Updates" links on the right side of the page.

2.     Send a copy to the address or email contact at the bottom of the nomination form by August 18, 2014.

Please take just a few moments to help us recognize these leaders who make our communities safer for our children. 

Recognition of Project Prevention Champions will take place in September to coincide with Recovery Month.   September 2014 marks the 25th year of National Recovery Month (, a national observance that educates Americans on the fact that addiction treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life.
