May 24, 2017 – Miami, Florida – The Coral Reef Senior High School Student’s Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Club won First Place for the Youth Fair Project. They were presented with a check for $300.00 by Officer Lily Diaz of the Miami-Dade Police Department.

Since its foundation in 1981, SADD has been the leading organization committed to saving lives by empowering teens to stand strong against destructive decisions. SADD has impacted the lives of millions: students, friends, parents, school and community leaders, law enforcement officials, and more. The strong connections that these groups built with SADD has resonated and grown into a brand that is recognized across the nation as a remarkable experience, equipping teens to become leaders and role models in their home communities and across the nation. In 1997, SADD expanded its mission to include other emerging issues, such as substance abuse, suicide, depression, bullying, violence, body image, and more. SADD does its best to equip students with the best, most effective resources to take the lead on the issues that matter to them.
