Hubbard House Announces Winner in Youth Art Contest

Mariah Blanton, an 8-year-old from Glen St. Mary, Florida, is the grand prize winner in Hubbard House’s first-ever Domestic Violence Awareness Month Youth Art Contest. She will receive a party for 10 at Jungle Quest, an indoor facility for kids that offers rock climbing, zip lines, tree houses and more.

Hubbard House held the contest in an effort to raise awareness about domestic violence among youth. “We all need to take an active stand against the violence and abuse that plagues our community. Domestic violence prevention is such an important step to ending the cycle of abuse,” said Laine Reinecke-Clayton, Hubbard House Community Education Manager. “This contest gave youth the opportunity to be a voice in this critical violence prevention effort.”
