SOMERSET — Chief George McNeil is pleased to announce that the Somerset Police Department is launching a new contest for local kids called the SPD Sidewalk Chalk Challenge.
Children are encouraged to draw messages to first responders on their driveways and sidewalks using chalk. The child with the most creative message will win a Somerset Police Autism Awareness patch.
If you do not have sidewalk chalk, please send a private message through the SPD Facebook page with your address and an officer will come by and deliver some chalk to your house. To send a private message, click the blue button that says “Send Message” at the top of the Facebook page. Please do not leave your address as a public comment on the page.
“This will be a fun way for kids to get out of the house and get creative while practicing social distancing and supporting our officers and other first responders,” Chief McNeil said. “If you do not have any chalk, please send us a private message on Facebook and we’ll drop some off for you.”
Please submit photos of your child’s finished artwork on the department’s Facebook post about this contest.
