South Loop 6th graders Zara Linneman and Ava Gladfelter were honored at an awards ceremony hosted by Cook County State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx for her office’s annual countywide anti-bullying and anti-drug poster contest.
Both Zara’s and Ava’s posters had an anti-bullying message for students. Zara’s poster said: “You never know what someone might be thinking. Stop bullying. It can lead to terrible things.” Ava’s poster said: “Stop. Bullying hurts at a deeper level.”
Ava and Zara received several prizes, including Chicago White Sox tickets, Chicago Sky tickets, Sky High trampoline park tickets, Go Apes ropes course tickets, and tickets to the Goodman Theatre for “A Christmas Carol.” Zara also received a scholarship for an arts camp at the School of the Art Institute.
