“DO THE WRITE THING” (DtWT) Bexar County

FacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailDear Friends,

The mission of the National Campaign to Stop Violence (NCSV), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan organization, is to reduce violence and its impact on the livesof youth. The primary initiative of the NCSV is the “DO THE WRITE THING” (DtWT) Challenge Program.

Our DtWT team is working diligently to revive the DtWT Program and give our BexarCounty youth the opportunity to accept the “Challenge”. Our team is so excited to update you on the amazing strides toward our goal, including our partnerships with the San Antonio Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (SACADA), our Leader Readers, and Aric Bostick. We are fired up!

Judge Antonia “Toni” Arteaga with her DtWT Committee.

First, we have partnered with Vickie Adams, Coalition Director of SACADA, who has generously accepted the challenge of coordinating the reading of all essays submitted.

Second, we are so very proud to announce our prestigious Selection Committee or our “LEADER READERS”, a collaboration of law enforcement, community and judiciary leaders. Our Leader Readers will evaluate our student finalist entries to select our two National Ambassadors (one male and one female) who will represent Bexar County at the NCSV’s Recognition Week in Washington, D.C. this summer.

And finally…ARIC BOSTICK! This gentleman is one of the nation’s leading motivational speakers and is now on our team! Aric will “fire up” our team so that all students, school administrators and teachers return to their schools raving about the DtWT Challenge. With Aric on our team … well, let’s just say on the motivational speaker circuit, Aric is the equivalent of our Tim Duncan! Our team is fired up and we hope you are ready for this amazing experience on APRIL 26, 2016! Details will follow on your role as Leader Readers. Tentatively, we will bring you no more than 50 (one-or-two page) essays for your review in January or early February 2016.
