HERKIMER, N.Y. -- Herkimer College hosted the annual Drug Quiz Show Thursday.
Middle school students were quizzed on topics like drugs, alcohol, gambling and bullying.
The students have been preparing for the event since the fall.
Students are competing to win prizes like a trip to Applebee’s, a bowling party and movie tickets.
Coordinators with the Herkimer County Prevention Council say this is a way for students to learn about important issues and have fun.
“We give them a participation trophy and we give them a pizza party just to show them that we're grateful for how much hard work they did. Even if they didn't win the competition today, they've gained a lot of valuable information that will serve them well throughout life,” said Herkimer County Prevention Council Regional Coordinator Nicole Law.
Seven local school districts participated in the event this year.
