Every year we pick a topic that is crucial to the students’ life experience, in their neighborhoods or at their schools. This contest was open to all Miami-Dade Public Schools and private/charter schools. We also selected an exemplary school, advisor and student of the year for continued efforts in preventing crime and spreading the word on school safety.

We congratulate the students and their parents for getting involved.
