Murt Sponsors Poster Contest to Raise Bullying Awareness
HARRISBURG—Rep. Thomas Murt (R-Montgomery/Philadelphia) will sponsor a poster contest for local school children to help raise awareness about bullying.

“Bullying remains one of the most challenging problems we face as parents and teachers,” Murt said. “By encouraging children to create posters that speak out against bullying, we’re helping them to think and act creatively in taking a stand against this unacceptable behavior.”

The contest is open to all third-grade students. The poster is to be no larger than 11.5 x 18.5 inches, and should include the student’s name, school and teacher on the back.

Please submit posters to Murt’s Hatboro District Office at 19 S. York Road. All entries are due no later than Friday, March 27, at 4 p.m.

Winner receives lunch and a tour of the State Capitol with their family.

“I want to encourage all kids who take part to be innovative and make their posters colorful,” Murt said.

Call Murt’s office at 215-674-3755 and ask for Tom Konen if you have any questions.
