This Week's #Playground2Prison Snapshot Contest Winner...
It’s Friday, which means one thing – it’s time to pick the final winner of the #Playground2Prison snapshot contest! Every week, during Youth Justice Awareness Month, people have submitted snapshots telling us why they fight for youth justice. The winning submissions receive, a YJAM goody bag including great YJAM swag: a Childhood Interrupted DVD, YJAM bracelet, Playground to Prison poster, and a YJAM tote.
This week, we received several great snapshots from the "Art with a Story" event hosted by Just Kids Partnership in Maryland. Check out our final YJAM winners:
This week’s winners are Devan and Femi Lawal!
Devan (9 years old) says: Youth shouldn't be charged as adults because they still have a lot to learn and [it can] also ruin their life at a young age.
Thank you for that message, Devan! We want to congratulate Devan and Femi on their awesome snapshot demonstrating their support for ending #Playground2Prison and joining our friends in Maryland for such an amazing event.
We loved seeing all of your submissions throughout the month! For more information about Youth Justice Awareness Month (YJAM), please visit the Campaign for Youth Justice website.
