Local students are winners in Youth Crime Watch competition
As proposed by Board Member Maria Teresa Rojas, the School Board recognized the 2017 Youth Crime Watch of Miami-Dade County (YCWMDC) Poster and Essay Contest Winners. YCWMDC, a program of Citizens’ Crime Watch of Miami-Dade County, Inc., joined forces with Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) in 1979 to educate young people about crime prevention, public safety, and school and community pride. Since its inception, more than 800,000 Miami Dade County Public students have received the tools and guidance necessary to reduce crime.

Every year, YCWMDC holds its annual poster and essay contest that is open to all M-DCPS students. This year’s theme was “Using Your Voice Against Youth Violence.”

Local student winners in the poster contest were Daniela Marin, sophomore at Barbara Goleman Senior High taking home first place in the high school division, and Greter Gutierrez sophomore at Barbara Goleman Senior High taking home third place in the high school division.

Essay contest winners from local schools include Carolina Garcia, seventh grader from Bob Graham Education Center, second place for middle school division, and Chika Ojukwu, ninth grader at Barbara Goleman Senior High School, third place for the high school division.
