MUSKEGON: Muskegon Area Career Tech Center (MACTC) student Gabrielle Hepler won a $25 gift card to Cinema Carousel for her submission to the Domestic Violence Awareness Poster Contest hosted by Every Woman’s Place in Muskegon. Gabrielle, a student at Whitehall High School, and several of her classmates participated in the contest.
Students were asked to illustrate their interpretation of domestic or dating violence. All posters were to be in color, include a message about stopping domestic violence, and fit an 8.5 by 11-inch format.
“After we were given the project guidelines, I went home and brainstormed a bunch of ideas,” said Gabrielle. Her final choice was “Break the Silence,” with a shattered mirror effect created entirely by hand using acrylic paint and torn paper.
Every Woman’s Place provides emergency shelter for victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. All services are free of charge to survivors and their children. For more information visit www.everywomansplace.org.
