Three York Catholic students won Crime Stoppers of York Region’s annual poster contest; a clean sweep for the Board! The contest challenged students across York Region to design a poster themed on the idea to “Respect Yourself.” The “Respect Yourself” theme emphasizes the importance of fostering a positive and accepting school environment for all students. It also demonstrates that Crime Stoppers is a community organization that relies upon responsible individuals to help create an acceptable, safe and supportive learning environment for everyone.
