Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Miriam Hall

As Miss Springville/Mapleton, my service platform is “Education on the Harms of Pornography.” Fight the New Drug (FTND) is the primary organization that I have partnered with to aid families in learning how to protect themselves from pornography.

FTND is an anti-pornography, non-profit organization that provides facts, personal accounts, and science-based information to spread the the message about the harmful effects of pornography.

They are the initiators of the “Porn Kills Love” movement, and their primary focus centers on showing how pornography affects the brain exactly like a drug, how it negatively affects relationships, and how it impacts society as a whole.

FTND gives live, age-appropriate presentations in school assembly settings. Thanks to the generous donations of many Springville and Mapleton businesses, these presentations are coming to all of the Jr. highs and high schools in Springville and Mapleton. FTND will also hold parent meetings in conjunction with the student assemblies.

These presentations will educate over 4,000 teens and their parents on how to protect themselves from pornography and fight pornography addiction.

In addition to the live presentations, all youth and young adults ages 20 and below will have access to FTND’s “Fortify” addiction recovery program for FREE.

FTND’s message is non-religious and non-political, and it gives real help and real hope to those who are struggling with pornography. I encourage everyone to visit FTND’s website, fightthenewdrug.org, for more information on how you can protect yourself and your family from pornography.
