Crime Alert Berks County

2017 Crime Alert Berks County Poster Contest

Update:  The official entry forms arrived.  Mrs. V will distribute a form to each student on the sign up sheet hanging on her door.  Please sign up if you are interested!

Crime Alert Berks County is sponsoring a poster contest for all 4th and 5th graders in public and parochial schools.  This is an important civic event that educates our students about the importance of families, respects police officers, and helps make our county and communities safer places to live.

The Together We Make A Family theme is designed to make students aware that their family is a safe place where they can be themselves, a place where they are protected from bad things in their lives.  It’s a place where they can get advice from a parent, older brother, older sister, and feel loved.  

The winning poster design will be printed large and in full color displayed in stores and businesses all over Berks County and it will be posted on 10 billboards throughout the county.

The class of the winning entry will get treated on May 18 to a night at Slick Willies/The Works with free ice cream and refreshments.  The winners will get to race go carts on the track.

1st prize - Xbox One

2nd prize - $300 Gift certificate to The Works

3rd prize - $100 Gift certificate to HobbyTownUSA

All interested 4th and 5th graders must sign up at Mrs. VanOstenbridge's office to receive an official entry form, which will be distributed the end of January.  Contact Mrs. V at with questions.
