Barbershop by the Nebraska City Apple Corps Barbershop Chorus
Looking for something to do with the kids during the winter. We have a wonderful "playground" right in our own backyard with Mahoney state park offering ice skating, ice fishing, and indoor birthday parties at the playground. So if your kids are getting cabin fever let them run off some energy in the ball pits and climbing wall and not your furniture.

No Tobacco Challenge Artwork Winner Announced
(Papillion, NE) – Tobacco Education & Advocacy of the Midlands (T.E.A.M.), Metro Omaha Tobacco Action Coalition (MOTAC), and Nebraska Methodist Health Systems invited over 1,500 third grade classrooms to participate in the “No Tobacco Challenge”. The challenge is a proactive, fun, and simple gateway to engaging students in Cass, Douglas, & Sarpy Counties in discussing the dangers of tobacco, and the importance of making health-conscious choices for our bodies. As part of the challenge, students were able to submit artwork to be featured on local billboards. The Grand Prize Winner's art was selected from a pool of finalists, selected on the basis of creativity, neatness, originality, and effectiveness at promoting the message of living tobacco free.
The Grand Prize Winner of the Artwork Contest, Lily Bock, from Thomas Elementary in Gretna, was presented with a banner of her design by T.E.A.M. Sarpy Coordinator Autumn Sky Burns and Gretna City Councilwoman Angie Lauritsen. Her artwork will be featured on two billboards, 84th & L in Omaha and Hwy 50 in Springfield. Lily’s winning entry also won her a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card, with a $50 one for her class.
All classrooms that participated were entered in a random drawing for a $200 Barnes and Noble Gift Certificate and a classroom pizza party, Druid Hill Elementary was this year’s lucky recipient.
To view all artwork entries, please visit www.teamtobaccofree.org/no-tobacco-challenge.
T.E.A.M. is a community coalition of more than forty local organizations that works to create healthy, tobacco-free areas for our community to enjoy. They meet on the 4th Thursday of the month at 11:30pm at CHI Health Midlands (11111 S. 84th St, Papillion) in the Smith Suite. For more information, visit www.T.E.A.M.tobaccofree.com.
