A Cane Bay High student’s drawing has won a statewide competition for an anti-violence school campaign.

U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles hosts the 11th annual Project Sentry Logo Contest and calls on South Carolina students to participate.

This year, the overall winner was Marcus Epps of Cane Bay High.

His work was chosen from 210 entries from 29 schools across South Carolina, and he received a $100 award.

According to Nettles’ office, the statewide contest gives South Carolina students an opportunity to tell the entire state how they prevent gun violence in their school. The theme of the contest was “Preventing Gun Violence in Your School.” The contest was open to students in all South Carolina schools.

The winning entries were selected by “The Insiders,” a select group of students from the S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice, who travel throughout the state, encouraging troubled children and promoting community awareness of the prevalence and consequences of juvenile crime.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office coordinated with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers’ Association Foundation (SCLEOA) to provide the cash awards to the winners.
