April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and the Walton County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) is looking for some talented young artists to help us bring awareness during this special time. WCSO is hosting the First Annual “Family Fun” art contest. Children are encouraged to share through two dimensional artwork (ie drawing, coloring, painting, etc) ideas that display what safe family fun activities consists of.
There will be three age categories: 5-10, 11-14, and 15-17. Photos will be shared on our Facebook page. Top entries in each age group wins a gift card from Blast Arcade and Laser Maze in Sandestin. The overall winner will also have their drawing created into a poster to display in all Walton County Sheriff’s Office substations.
Submissions may be dropped off at the WCSO main office, 752 Triple G Road, DeFuniak Springs, FL, or the Santa Rosa Beach substation, 133 Sheriff Drive, between the hours of 8-5, Monday-Friday. You may also mail submissions to: Walton County Sheriff’s Office, 752 Triple G Road, DeFuniak Springs, FL 32433. Please include name of child and age, as well as a contact number for the parent/guardian on the back of the artwork. We ask that the child reside in Walton County or attend Walton County Schools. Please do not use any paper larger than 11 X 7.
