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

My name is Miriam Hall, and I am honored to represent our communities as Miss Springville/Mapleton 2017. My pageant service platform is “Education on the Harms of Pornography”, and I have partnered with the non-profit anti-pornography organization Fight the New Drug to strengthen Springville and Mapleton families.

Fight the New Drug is a worldwide organization that has been recognized by ABC Nightline, CNN, Psychology Today and many other major news outlets. Their live presentations have a science-based, non-religious, non-political approach and are extremely effective at connecting with teenage audiences.

It has been my goal to bring FTND educational anti-pornography assemblies and parent presentations to all of the junior high and high schools in Springville and Mapleton.

I am pleased to announce that 10 presentations have been scheduled for the month of October. This means that over 4,000 students and their parents will be educated on how to protect themselves from pornography.

Although these assemblies are scheduled for the junior high and high schools in our community, the city-wide parent presentations are open to any adult – regardless of whether or not you have a teenager attending junior high or high school. I would like to extend a personal invitation to all adults in our community to attend one of these highly effective presentations.

The parent presentations are incredibly informative in teaching parents the science of how pornography affects the brain like a hard drug, how the pornography industry is targeting their children and what they can do to better protect themselves and their families.

The schedule for the parent presentations is as follows:

October 3rd:r- Springville High School (1205 E 900 S, Springville, UT 84663)r- 7:00 pm

October 9th:r- Mapleton Jr. High (362 E 1200 N, Mapleton, UT 84664)r- 7:00 pm

I would like to thank all of the generous business sponsors, school administrators, and members of our community who have helped to make this goal a reality.
