CASA of Jeffco and Gilpin celebrate 20 years with stickers

Posted

In celebration of 20 years of advocacy, CASA of Jefferson and Gilpin Counties announced the winners of its new sticker design competition. CASA children were encouraged to design a sticker (or several) and enter in the first ever sticker design contest.

The winners were selected by CASA volunteers and were announced in February. There were four age groups challenged with designing a sticker to be printed and used throughout the 20thanniversary year. The designs capture the children’s thoughts and feelings through their artistic ability.

The four age groups ranged from children ages 4-16. The winners *names changed due to confidentiality* were:

Ages 4 to 6:Linus, a 6-year-old boy who included shades of blue, green and red in his design as well as adding stickers onto the sticker for some added flair.

Ages 7 to 10: At just 7 years old, Coraline included a drawing of the beach on her sticker with a palm tree and the sun.

Ages 11 to 14:Christian, a 12-year-old boy, decided to use a tie dye design. His use of bright colors in his design stood out to the judges.

Ages 15+:16-year-old Maddie won with her minimalist sticker design. She drew images including a picnic, dog, paintbrush, car and cup of coffee and a landscape with flowers on the bottom of the sticker.

“We want to thank all our advocates and children who entered in the sticker contest and congratulate the winners of each group,” said Leah Varnell, executive director.

In the 20 years that CASA Jefferson/Gilpin has been a voice for children of abuse, they have provided support to more than 3,200 abused and neglected children. CASA works to serve the most vulnerable children through advocacy, awareness and support.
