Project Jericho staff and students attended the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund’s April Child Abuse Prevention Month Kick-Off event March 25, 2019, at the Ohio Statehouse. This event featured the artwork of five Project Jericho youth: Elijah Midgette, Jakima Midgette, Jersey McGath, Juliana McGath and Joshlyn Rice. Their artwork was accepted into the Everyday Hero Contest and displayed at the Ohio Statehouse. Joshlyn Rice was awarded 3rd place for her artwork. Joshlyn’s winning entry was of a bumblebee that has the power to help and protect others.
Additional Project Jericho participants created child abuse prevention posters that will be distributed to organizations and businesses participating in Clark County Department of Job and Family Services’ April Blue Ribbon Tree Campaign.
