This year’s theme for the contest was “Stand Up for Children, There’s No Excuse for Child Abuse.”
District Spokesperson Heather Aubin says students were asked to implement facts, feelings and ideas about preventing child abuse into their artwork. Family Resource and Youth Service Centers across the district then collected their school’s top five posters and poems and top entries were taken to the Pennyrile Children’s Advocacy Center for judging.
Winners of the contest and their families have been invited to the Christian County Prevents Child Abuse Candlelight Vigil on Tuesday, April 16 at North Drive Middle School. Students will receive recognition and awards at this event.
