The Dispute Resolution Center in Conroe has asked the WBA to assist with two of its initiatives:
The first is the 2015 Conflict Resolution Day Bookmark Art Contest. In conjunction with National Mediation Week, the DRC is holding the Conflict Resolution Day Bookmark Art Contest for Montgomery County residents in grades K -8. WBA members have the opportunity to assist in judging the contest. Judging will take place Friday October 2nd in the afternoon at the DRC. If you are interested in judging, please contact Elaine Roberts, Executive Director of the DRC, at firstname.lastname@example.org, before the end of September. The award ceremony will be held October 16th in Judge Hamilton’s courtroom. Details and flyers below.
The DRC is also hoping to donate the book “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio to Montgomery County Schools. The book is intended for students in grades 4 to 8. It is the story of a young man with a rare birth defect who enters the public school system in the 5th grade and encounters friends and bullies. “Wonder” was on the NYT Bestseller’s list and is very inspirational. It is available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble if any WBA members want to sponsor copies for schools. If you would like more information on sponsoring copies of this book for schools, please contact Elaine Roberts at mailto:email@example.com.
