PROJECT TDVA WINNERS!!!

Last Month was National Teen Dating Violence Awareness month!

Our students had the opportunity to participate in our first ever Instagram hashtag contest called PROJECT TDVA.

The students did an excellent job participating, getting creative, and spreading the awareness of teen dating violence throughout this contest. It was awesome to see all of their posts, comments, and support for one another as they all competed for the grand prize. Each weeks winner won a $25 gift card of their choosing, and the grand prize winner won $125! We would like to share the winners with you.

Week 2 Theme:

#TDVAmyths There are many myths about relationships. Such as, if my dating partner gets jealous a lot that means they love me. So, when we hear Nick Jonas tell us that it is normal, we believe him. Jealousy does not equal love. What are some other myths that you know about relationships that can be red flags?

The Winner of myths week was also from Mason Middle School!

Student's Post: This is an example of an unhealthy relationship. There are many rumors and people may be convinced that this means your dating partner really likes you and just wants to make sure you are safe, but that's not the case if they ask you who you are with and what you are doing 24/7. That is an unhealthy relationship.

Week 4 theme:

#TDVArespect what does respect look like for you in a healthy relationship?

The winner of respect week was from Madison High School!

Student from Madison HS: respect to me is being an open minded person and understanding that everyone is entitled to their views and opinions and perspectives and values. respect is a must have to building trust and relationships. respect is people being nonjudgemental, allowing everyone the chance to be happy and free.treating people the best you can each day. show that the person is worth your time and has a purpose in life. you dont want to be rude and disrespectful to people all the time, that will make them feel upset. they deserve to be here. respect is treating people how you would want to be treated. respect means treating everyone equally. It means recognizing that every individual is a person of worth. respect means accepting others without judgment, not putting others down for where they come from or their background, everyone deserves respect, respect is choosing to be the bigger person. if someone is disrespectful you don't do it back, you just respectfully ignore them if they are being rude. respect is acceptance. you know this person, and how they act, but yet you still continue to treat them like a actual human being. respect these past years has changed. no one respects anyone anymore. respect also means thinking about how your own actions can affect others. It involves making a easy decision to act in a caring, positive manner through your words and your actions. to me respect is the acceptance of others, and choosing to be different than the "cool" kids, and actually being yourself and polite, you don't try and impress anyone by being funny or cracking a joke.. respect is all about kindness and consideration.
