Two students from Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School were recognized by Child Abuse Prevention Services for their efforts to fight bullying through art.

Fourth-graders Tiffany Asbell and Hilary Escobar Mejia took part in the CAPS bullying prevention poster contest, and were both awarded honorable mention. The theme of Tiffany’s poster was “Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out,” and the slogan for Hilary’s piece was “Stop the bullying. Let’s be friends.”

The students created the posters after participating in anti-bullying workshop at the school, presented by CAPS, as part of Park Avenue’s character education program.
