Welcome all Apple A Day students who have designed and submitted a poster to the Apple A Day poster contest!!
Winners of the contest and their family are invited to come to our annual Start Smart COMMUNITY EVENT to kick off 2020-2021 prevention education programs in local schools!

The Addictions Care Center of Albany is excited to be presenting the 11th Annual Start Smart Apple A Day Festival on Saturday, September 19, 2020 from 11am – 2pm. Start Smart is the umbrella term for ACCA’s substance abuse prevention education continuum which is provided annually to Capital Region youth and families. There are plenty of activities, games and food for the entire family, as well as a special awards ceremony to announce the ACCA’s 2019-2020 annual Prevention Poster Contest winners.

The ACCA delivers prevention education to over 5,500 Capital Region children each year to help support healthy communities and prevent underage drinking, drug abuse and other risky behaviors. Programs are customized for grades K-4, grades 5-8, high school and family-focused prevention education. Students participate in 6-8 week curriculums where an emphasis is placed on literacy, a proven protective factor against drug and alcohol use.

Proceeds to benefit the community and school-based prevention education programs and services of the Addictions Care Center of Albany, Inc. (ACCA).
