Family Nurturing Center Offers Contest to Raise Awareness
Cincinnati, OH – March 11, 2013 – April is recognized nationally as Child Abuse Prevention Month and Family Nurturing Center is raising awareness in the community by offering a Children’s Art Contest for children in 3rd through 5th grade.
The Children’s Art Contest is a part of Family Nurturing Center’s Blue Ribbon Campaign, which is a community wide effort to recognize collective responsibility to prevent and confront all forms of child abuse and neglect. Entries for the art contest should be of a hand drawing using any medium, up to poster size paper, and related to the theme, ‘Prevent Child Abuse’. Entries can include a personal slogan or tag line.
The winning entry will be reproduced into an advertisement poster and displayed inside T.A.N.K. buses during the entire month of April. The wining artist can choose to receive a prize of either a gift card to Hobby Lobby, or a pizza party for their school classroom, scout group, church class, or youth club.
The wining artists will be asked to attend the Blue Ribbon Ceremony to kick off Child Abuse Prevention Month on Friday, April 5th, at 12:00 noon, hosted by Tom Gill Chevrolet, Florence, KY. At the ceremony, the winner will receive an award and recognition for their submission by Florence Mayor Diane Whalen.
