Lily’s Place Hosts Poster Contest for Child Abuse Prevention Month

During the month of April, the McDowell County Child Advocacy Center (Lily’s Place) sponsored its Annual 4th Grade Poster Contest in honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month. This year’s theme was “Every Child Matters!” and there were over 300 entries from several elementary schools including West Marion, Marion, Glenwood, Eastfield, Pleasant Gardens, and North Cove Elementary.  District Attorney Ted Bell generously donated 2 bicycles and helmets to our grand prize winners from North Cove Elementary and Glenwood Elementary.  The winners were thrilled to receive new bikes as their prize!
