Dress Purple Day, Poster Challenge!

Oct 2, 2017

Every October, Ontario Children’s Aid Societies raise awareness regarding identification and prevention of child abuse. “Dress Purple Day” is October 24, 2017. This year the Children’s Aid Society for the district of Nipissing and Parry Sound plans to take raising awareness one step further. Along with “Dress Purple Day”, we will be hosting a poster challenge to the grades three to six classrooms.


The poster challenge is an awareness campaign aimed at recognizing strengths in children. The goal of the poster challenge, “My Inner and Outer Strengths” is to engage students creatively and intellectually.

The winning poster will be framed and displayed in the Society’s future location. The focus of our new building is, “Community focused, community driven”, what no better way to express this then involving schools in our community. As well, the winning classroom will also receive a hot chocolate and popcorn party served to them by Children’s Aid staff.
