ATLANTA – The Georgia Department of Education has announced the winners of the statewide poster contest to promote a national hotline for reporting and preventing Human Sex Trafficking.
Submissions were judged by a panel of state officials representing several areas of expertise. Two winners from each of the 16 Regional Education Service Agencies (RESAs) areas – one for an English poster and one for a Spanish poster – were chosen and will now be printed and sent to the respective RESA for distribution to the schools in that area. The winning posters will be displayed in schools within their region.
The regional winners will receive a cash prize – 1st place wins $100, 2nd place wins $50, and 3rd place wins $25 (taxpayer funds are not used for any prizes).
The 1st place winning posters will now be judged to determine one state winner for the English poster and one state winner for the Spanish poster. The state winners will be announced in December 2012. State winners will receive $250.
