The "Annual Provincial Rural Crime Watch Association Poster Contest" is a competition that is supported by the Boyle Rural and Districts Crime Watch Association. School aged children throughout Alberta are encouraged to create posters to share their thoughts and creativity on Alberta Rural Crime Watch and Alberta Fish & Wildlife. The communities competing in the Boyle district include:
Boyle, Grassland, Casland and Wandering River area.
Entries are broken down into two categories: Hand Drawn and Computer Generated. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners are declared in each category based on the best demonstration of crime prevention or crime awareness.
Entries first compete locally and winners are presented with monetary prizes. All local 1st place winning entries are sent to the Alberta Provincial Crime Watch Associate Poster Contest where the posters are reviewed and judged. The Provincial Association awards 1st place with a plaque and $65.00, 2nd place with a plague and $45.00, and 3rd place with a plaque and $30.00. 1st place provincial winners also get the honour of having their posters included in the Annual Rural Crime Watch Calendar.
The annual Poster Contest is open to all students, grades 1-9 in rural communities. Posters can be HAND DRAWN or COMPUTER GENERATED (CG) , but the CG posters MUST show original content by the student, as well. Incorrect spelling automatically disqualifies a poster.
There are three (3) themes:
RURAL CRIME WATCH - ARE YOU AWARE?
REPORT A POACHER
Posters need to represent what RURAL CRIME WATCH/CRIME PREVENTION means to each individual.
All local Rural Crime Watch Associations are asked to hold their own contests. ONLY first place winning posters from local contests are to be sent to:
