kids count award

Congratulations to our Kids Count program on their second runner-up placing in the “Real Love Is…” Social Change Tech Challenge!  Organized jointly by The Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women (MCBW) and HopeLine® from Verizon, the Challenge asked youth teams from across Minnesota to creatively engage their peers and communities to respond to the issue of teen dating violence.  The teams used the hashtag #RealLoveIs to create advocates and promote healthy relationships across social media channels Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Tumblr.  The 3 winning teams were awarded grants to advance their teen dating violence campaigns in their communities.
