Two Catholic Schools Win Prizes in School Safety Contest

SafetyLocalNewsJune2014Catholic Mutual’s 3rd Annual Safety in the Schools Contest recently concluded this week, and two Catholic schools in the diocese were announced as winners.

The grand prize of $10,000 went to St. Jude School in Joliet. Their entry was titled “Say Something,” an anti-bullying themed video written, produced, and acted by their students. Different students spoke of various anti-bullying messages with the stated goal to get those who are bullied to “Say Something.”

St. Isidore School in Bloomingdale submitted a lighthearted video with students of all grade levels singing various general safety messages. At the end, the whole school – including teachers, staff, many parents and parish clergy – concluded the video with their rendition of SAFE St. Isidore.  St. Isidore will receive one of three runner-up prizes of $500.  This is the second year St. Isidore has won a prize.
