PHOENIX - In an effort to make young people aware of the tragedy of elder abuse, Attorney General Tom Horne and the Arizona Elder Abuse Coalition have partnered in the 2013 'Why Should I Care About Elder Abuse?' Junior High School Arts Competition.
"This competition has helped increase awareness of elder abuse," said Horne. "While my office continues to prosecute perpetrators of elder abuse, only through awareness can we stop abuse before it begins."
Submissions of poster art designs must be received by 5p.m. on May 3rd.
Contest results will be announced in May. Statewide contest winners will receive a first, second and third place prize of $100, $75, $50 and five honorable mentions will receive $25.
Winning artworks will also be printed on a poster to be distributed as part of the statewide Elder Abuse Awareness campaign held to coincide with World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15, 2013.
