BoKiJu (Bocholt children's and youth site)

Poster campaign: "Bocholt shakes awake".

We asked you for your ideas for a poster on youth protection - and you answered!

We received a huge selection of great posters on the topics of cyberbullying, moral courage and alcohol. Our jury had the almost impossible task of choosing the winners from the great entries.

In the end, the jury decided to highlight six posters as particularly successful.

These are the winners:

World Children's Day

World Children's Day Festival_018

World Children's Day on 22 September was a complete success again this year!

In addition to the welcoming address by Elisabeth Kroesen (Deputy Mayor) and Klaus Schepp (Headmaster of St Joseph's Grammar School), Zeynab Mohammady and Annette Grümer-Weyers also opened the Intercultural Weeks for the first time this year.

A colourful stage programme from the music school and great creative and movement activities attracted many families to the Kapu, and the weather also played along until the end.

Under the motto of this year's World Children's Day: "Every child needs a future!", attention was drawn to the rights of children at the various activity stands. The number of visitors was overwhelming and your participation at the hands-on stations brought the event to life.
