Youth Violence Prevention Essay, Poetry & Art Contest Awards Luncheon April 29
From press release
The Violence Prevention Collaborative’s fourth annual Essay, Poetry and Art Contest awards luncheon will be at noon, Thursday, April 29, at Patriot’s Gateway, 615 S. Fifth St. Students in Rockford School District elementary schools, middle schools and after-school programs answered the question, “What does kindness look like?” in essay, poetry or art format. The question posed to high school students: “What is teen dating violence?”
For the past three years, the Violence Prevention Collaborative has given youth an opportunity to voice their opinion about a violence-related topic. The winning essays, poems and art will be on display at various locations throughout the year, including the Winnebago County Health Department, University of Illinois College of Medicine, and both the Ellis Heights and Kishwaukee Corridor Weed and Seed sites.
