Earlier this year Cami Horman was a sixth grader, preparing to create a poster for the Massac County Soil and Water Conservation's annual poster contest, when she became aware of a program that would eventually become her platform in the Miss Metropolis Pageant and one that she is starting in Massac County.

When Horman, 12, a student at Jefferson Elementary School began thinking of ideas for the poster contest. Her mother, Lanna Horman, who read an article in the Southeastern Illinois Electric Co-op magazine about a program called P2D2 that was started in a high school class in Pontiac and shared that article with her children.

What is P2D2? It is the Prescription Pill and Drug Disposal Program, a collaborative effort between communities, local pharmacies, police departments, hospitals, city officials, students and more.

According to the P2D2program.org website, the program is to educate the public about the harm done to the environment and the misuse and abuse of pharmaceuticals due to the current prescription and non-prescription drug disposal practices world wide.
