Anti Bullying Poster Contest Winner

The Weirton-Wellsburgh Chapter of Credit Union  hosts the annual   Anti-Bullying Poster Contest for 5th graders.  Since my daughter is in fifth grade this year, she entered the said poster making contest.  She combined her passion for baking and  arts  and came up  with this  design.  
I love that the  principal and the  fifth grade student's teacher   also attended the event.  It goes to show how supportive they are to their students.  
 IN my  daughter's school, her  design was the winner but there were also great entries that the board couldn't pass on so they chose four of them to be runners-up.
 Only St. Joseph has 5 winners.    The public schools has one winner and other catholic school has one winner and a runner up.
 We went early so we had the chance to take some pictures.
 We decided to sit in one table  along with the other parents and students from St. Joe's.
 The awarding ceremony was held in Holiday Inn and they served a buffet dinner.
The kids had so much fun while we were waiting for the ceremony to start.
 The  city mayor was also there and gave a speech.
 The principal to  the other catholic school was also there and a representative to the  Hancock public school was also present.
 The kids in the front row are the winners from 6 different schools and the kids at the back are the runners-up.

Rylie received $100 cash gift and a certificate.  The runners-up also received a certificate and $25 cash gift.   I am not really sure if this is a certificate as I have never seen a certificate without a signature but it is something she can  add to her  personal  accomplishment.
This campaign is very dear to my heart because I experienced bullying when I was a kid and that's something I don't want my kids to experience.  


  1. Bullying is a terrible thing. I love that your daughter got to participate in such an important subject. You must be so proud.

  4. This is really so great! Bullying is so terrible, yet it's totally epidemic in our country right now. I'm glad someone is doing something to spread the word, what a wonderful kid.

  5. Congrats to your DD! Funny thing is when I was her age, my teacher entered one of my art projects into a national contest without my permission and I won it and I won the chance to be on the TV show Romper Room on channel 13 which was so awesome! She must be so stoked! And now with this post she is famous TWICE! :-)
