Madelynn Vasquez, from Tara Heights Elementary, was this year’s winner of the D.A.R.E. Pledge Contest. Madelynn attended the mayor’s luncheon, received her very own Daren, and rode in the 1957 Chevy D.A.R.E. car in Papillion’s annual Papillion Days parade with her D.A.R.E. officer, Officer Tony Foster.

This was the 3rd year for the pledge contest. All 6th grade D.A.R.E. students are invited to enter. The pledge needs to be at least 1 paragraph long.  Officer Foster picks the top 6, removes all names, and then sends them to city hall for the mayor and city administrator to pick the winner.
