The contest was open to all students of Porterville area schools.  Participants were asked to design a banner that has an anti-gang theme.

The purpose of the contest is to promote Step Up, which seeks to decrease gang activity and support positive options for youth and their families.  First place prizes were awarded in each age division.  The grand prize winner was awarded a $250 gift card and has their artwork featured on a Porterville Transit bus.
