Help stop crime, win an iPad

YOUNG PEOPLE have the chance to win an iPad while learning about the new ways to report crime.

YOUNG PEOPLE have the chance to win an iPad while learning about the new ways to report crime.

This summer, Terrace Crime Stoppers introduced two new ways to submit a tip: SMS texting and its new web page.

Now you can simply text “TERRACE” and the information you wish to provide, to CRIMES (274637) from any cell phone or device with SMS capability.

Or you can submit a tip via the web page www.terracecrimestoppers.ca.

Two contests have started for youths: a poster contest for Grades 7-9 with posters to be displayed in the community and schools about the new ways to submit a tip. And a TV commercial contest for Grades 10-12 with the commercial played on local stations.

The winner of each contest will be awarded an iPad.

Each entry must include full name, grade, school, address and phone number on the back of the poster or attached to the data storage device of the commercial. Winners will be chosen based on how attractive and clear the message is on how to submit tips.

Poster should be no larger than 9”x12” and commercial must be 30 seconds.

Each entry must include the three ways to submit a tip to Crime Stoppers, that there is a cash reward up to $2,000 for tips that lead to an arrest, and that anonymity is guaranteed.

Drop off entries at the Terrace RCMP detachment by Dec. 18.
