April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
Children's Artwork 2019
Each year, elementary students from a selected school within the Child Advocacy Services service area are educated about what child abuse and neglect is and asked to create an original work of art to represent their interpretation of what they have learned. A contest is held and the overall winning artwork is used on the cover of the annual CAS calendar. Twelve other winners are selected and featured in the calendar as well. The overall winner becomes the showcase art to be used in a poster that is given as recognition to community members and donors for their continued support. The artwork shown here was created by 4th grade students at Juban Parc Elementary School in Denham Springs. Our thanks to these students, their teachers, and the Livingston Parish School System for participating in this project.
For more information on how your school can participate in this annual event, please contact Lauren Reynolds at 800-798-1575.
