Richmond County Schools students recently participated in the third annual Richmond County Crime Stoppers Art Contest.
Students from middle school and high schools created posters to raise awareness about Campus Crime Stoppers.
Rick Deese, Chairman of the Richmond County Crime Stoppers Committee, discussed the purpose of the contest during special presentations to the winning students.
“We want to promote the campus Crime Stoppers program and let students know that it is available,” Deese said.
Susan Brigman, principal of the Richmond County Transitional School and board member of the Crime Stoppers Committee feels that the contest is successful in “getting a lot of students involved.”
The winners were recognized May 10 at their schools with a visit from Deese and Brigman, their winning artwork and checks as a reward for their accomplishments.
Each winner is pictured with Brigman and Deese as they receive their checks. 1st place winner, Isaac White from Richmond County Ninth Grade Academy won $75.00 and will have his poster displayed. 2nd place winner Lonnie Monique Jasper, a senior at Richmond Senior High School won $50.00. 3rd place winner Jasmine Jones, from Richmond Ninth Grade Academy won $25.00.
Crime Stoppers will host hosting its 3rd Annual Car Show on Saturday, May 28, 2011 from 10:00-4:00 at the Cole Auditorium. Each of the three winning posters will be on display at the show.
Richmond County Transitional School will host a food booth to sell hotdogs and hamburgers to raise money for an EOC reward field trip. The event will feature several family friendly activities: jumping houses, food, games, music, face painting, etc. It will also feature a performance by Renee’s dance studio. Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts will also participate in the event.
