The poster contest challenged Berks County students in grades 3 through 12 to create an artistic poster depicting The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Online Gaming. Sponsored by the Council on Chemical Abuse (COCA), the contest is part of an awareness campaign about problem gambling and online gaming. Any Berks County student in grades 3 through 12 was eligible to participate, including cyber-schooled and home-schooled youth. Submissions were judged in three age categories: elementary (grades 3-5), middle school (grades 6-9), and high school (grades 10-12).
