2013 VPP Awards Photos
The 23rd Annual Violence Prevention Awards Ceremony was held on Tuesday, May 7, 2013.
The Violence Prevention Project began in 1990 to offer information about alternatives to violence as a means to solving problems. The close connection between violence and the use of illegal drugs soon lead to a discussion about alternatives to drugs as well as violent behavior. And, with the increased access to electronic technology it was necessary to include the subject of internet safety. The education programs and this contest have been used to encourage members of our community, particularly our youth, to promote positive behavior.
This year, we received over 2000 entries from students representing 46schools in Montgomery County. During the ceremony we acknowledged the top winners. The posters and essays we received during this year's contest prove that our youth are aware of the problems that exist and have messages to share. Hopefully, these messages will promote others to consider peaceful resolutions to problems.
