The Family Nurturing Center in Florence is raising awareness of Child Abuse Prevention Month in April by sponsoring a children’s art contest for children in grades 3-5.
The Children’s Art Contest is a part of Family Nurturing Center’s Blue Ribbon Campaign, 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 winning 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 winning artists will be asked to attend the Blue Ribbon Ceremony to kick off Child Abuse Prevention Month on April 5 at noon hosted by Tom Gill Chevrolet in Florence. At the ceremony, the winner will receive an award and recognition for their submission by Florence Mayor Diane Whalen.
All entries must include a parental consent form. To learn more and download the contest flyer, click here.
