April is designated as Child Abuse Prevention month but sadly, crimes against children occur every day of the year. Criminal Justice and Court System students are participating in the 2018 Cardboard Kids campaign. Students are not only decorating their cardboard kids, they are also presenting a paper explaining their design. This paper must include statistics about child abuse and list places where to get help. Students are presenting a second paper identifying at least three crimes against children or to research a Texas child abuse case. Students must also apply the correct penal code cite to the offense. April the 5th is “reveal day.” Students will take a picture of their Cardboard Kid, share the location, and the spread the word about the thousands of abused and neglected children through social media using #cardboardkidsSA.
