In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we are co-sponsoring a Denim Day NYC Op-ed writing contest for college students along with all five of New York’s Borough Presidents. Here is a letter from the Borough Presidents explaining the contest and the significance of Denim Day. One winner from each Borough will be selected and awarded a $500 prize. Each winner will have the opportunity to be honored on the steps of City Hall on Denim Day, April 24 at noon. Please help us spread the word about this important opportunity to engage students in a dialogue about sexual violence prevention by circulating this flyer and emailing this link to your students: Deadline for submission is April 8, 2013 at 5:00 PM EST. Visit our website – for information. Please let me know if you have any questions about participation.
