Mark your calendars! The ADAPAO Social & Prevention Showcase will take place Sunday, October 6, 2019 from 1:00 to 4:00pm at Amelita Mirolo Barn in Upper Arlington, Ohio (a suburb of Columbus). 

The ADAPAO Social & Prevention Showcase is a celebratory and social event for Ohio's prevention community, both adults and youth, and features presentation of the ADAPAO Youth Prevention Awards, honoring Ohio youth engaged in prevention in their communities or on the state level. For the first time, the event will also feature mini-presentations from communities throughout Ohio highlighting innovative prevention interventions. ADAPAO members will receive award nomination information and showcase presentation applications through membership communications.
