Time running out for crime prevention poster contest

Time is running out for Bartholomew County students to submit a poster for Crime Prevention Month. The Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department is inviting students in grades K-12 to create a poster on a sheet of paper, 8.5 x 11 inches. Students can use pen, pencil, colored pencil, crayon, paint or felt pen. No computer generated submissions will be accepted.

Entries should be dropped off at the Bartholomew County Jail front desk, at 543 Second Street in Columbus, by 5 p.m. on October 31st. Students should include their name, school, grade and telephone number on the back of the poster.

Three winners will be selected on or before November 5th. The winning posters will be displayed in jail’s administrative offices. Winners and “honorable mentions” will have their photo, name, other information and their posters posted on the Sheriff’s Facebook page.
