KENILWORTH, NJ - Before the end of last year's school session, Ms. Janice Marsili, seventh grade Art Teacher at David Brearley Middle School, conducted an art poster contest. 

The students were advised to draw something that evoked a health related theme, some drew ideas associated with air pollution, smoking, eating habits, medication and alcohol abuse. 

Once each art poster was completed, all twenty of them, they were submitted to the Kenilworth Health Department where they hung in the window throughout the summer months.
