Jonesboro Students Win Honors in AG's Child Safety Awareness Poster Contest

MAY 24, 2005 - Posted at 7:46 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Attorney General's office announced the winners of its ninth annual statewide poster and essay contest highlighting Child Safety Awareness.  There were more than 400 entries statewide, and 28 winners were selected.

The theme was "Ready, Set, Internet."  Much of the artwork depicted kids at computers and included admonitions that they not give information to strangers.  Essays followed along the same lines.

In one piece of artwork, a chatroom discussion included someone posing a question about a child's name and address.  The child responds: "Just call me question mark and I live on Earth."

Local winners include:

-Beau Jones, Jonesboro (Fox Meadow Intermediate Center), 1st Place - 3rd & 4th Grade Level.

-Deanna Baggett, Jonesboro (Fox Meadow Intermediate Center), 2nd Place (Essay Contest), 3rd & 4th Grade Level.

-Rashelle Williams, Jonesboro (Fox Meadow Intermediate Center), Honorable Mention (Essay Contest), 4th Grade Level.
