The Awards Luncheon for the Violence Prevention Collaborative’s third annual Essay, Poetry and Art Contest will be held on Wednesday, April 8, 2009 at Patriot’s Gateway from 12:00-2:00 pm. Rockford School District winners were chosen in four divisions from 35 submissions. The divisions are: Division 1 (1st- 5th grade); Division 2 (6th-8th grade); Division 3 (9th-12th grade); and Division 4 (after-school program). This year’s contest question was “How do you stop a bully?”

For the past three years the Violence Prevention Collaborative has given youth an opportunity to voice opinions on a topic. The first annual contest’s question was “What do the words gun violence mean to you”, while last year’s contest asked, “What is a Bully?”
