           In recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month in October, Mayor

           the public will use their voices to speak up against child abuse
           at the 4th Annual Use Your Voice Challenge.

           bragging rights, the winner will be awarded a trophy in
           recognition of their talent and contribution to the cause.
