Mural Design Contest for High School Seniors - Justice For All" Award"



One of the most important and meaningful prosecutions this Office engages in is holding offenders who sexually assault children accountable. Often, the children need to come to the District Attorney’s Office to meet with prosecutors and prepare for court.

We need your help to create a mural for the room that we use to meet with children who are victims of sexual assault. The age range for these children is about 6-14 years of age.

We want this space to be as comfortable as possible under these circumstances. We want the mural to be colorful, creative, and convey a message of peace and hope.

All Santa Clara County High School Seniors are invited to submit a mural design by Friday, May 17, 2013. Winners will be announced on Friday, May 31, 2013. We will use the first place winner’s design to redecorate this special space. The winner will also receive $500 and his/her name will appear on the mural. The second place winner will receive $300 and the third place winner will be awarded $200.
