Several Fort Bend ISD schools competed in the 2012 Exchange Club of Sugar Land Blue Ribbon Competition. The Exchange Club holds the contest each year to help raise awareness about Child Abuse Prevention Month in April. The campaign uses blue ribbons to highlight the plight of child abuse in our community.
FBISD schools were invited to participate in the challenge by making the most eye-catching decoration of their school frontage with blue ribbons, banners, cutouts and other innovative displays that generate awareness. The Exchange Club of Sugar Land honored the winning schools on April 25 at an awards breakfast.
Winners of the contest were:
• Meadows Elementary School – 1st place ($800 award), Theme: “Blow Away Child Abuse”
• Jones Elementary School – 2nd place ($650 award), Theme: “Children – You Can’t Recycle Them”
• Walker Station Elementary School – 3rd place ($450 award), Theme: “Unless someone like you cares an awful lot, it’s not going to change. It’s not! WSE Cares!”
