Go Blue Contest

Go Blue Day in Texas is  Go Blue Day 2017
Friday, April 7, 2017
.
It’s a day where everyone is encouraged to wear blue in support of child abuse victims.

Go Blue Contest
This contest is designed to encourage participation and creativity on Go Blue Day. Put on your thinking caps and figure out how to Go Blue. You might decorate your place with blue ribbons, blue lights and “No Excuse for Child Abuse” signs. You might ask everyone at your school or business to wear blue and get a group photo or simply send us a selfie in blue. In the past, several of our local papers added “No Excuse for Child Abuse” to their mastheads and students at LH Rather Junior High used blue solo cups stuck in their fence to spell out “No Excuse for Child Abuse.” We loved these creative ideas and want to encourage more of it! (See below for more ideas.)
