Malayssia Johnson, a fifth grade at J.L. Lomax School won the Child Abuse prevention poster contest.

Fourth grader Kevin Bell also from J.L. Lomax, placed second. The third place winner is Sarah Tilman from Valwood School.

"Anybody can work to help us prevent child abuse by coming and talking with us to see what you can do or just mentoring a child," says Brenda Johnson, Children's Advocacy Center Executive Director.

The poster contest was put together by the Leadership Lowndes League and the Children's Advocacy Center of Lowndes County. They want to bring awareness to child abuse.
