License Plate Design Contest for 9-12

In 2016, thirteen Virginians were killed and more than 800 injured in automobile crashes involving a distracted teen driver. For this reason, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is launching a statewide license plate design contest for high school students. The Take Action Against Distraction Plate Design Contest aims to start the conversation and raise awareness about distracted driving. Also, it provides an opportunity for students to share their visual arts skills for a worthy cause and potentially save a life.

All 9-12 students enrolled in a Virginia school are invited to design a license plate depicting distraction-free driving. Design entries must be submitted online between November 1 and December 15, 2017, through the official contest website at:  www.dmvNOW.com/vaplatecontest. Eight finalist designs will be selected by February 20, 2018, and will be placed online for public voting in the Spring of 2018. Finalists will be awarded cash prizes. The winner will be announced in April 2018.

Be a Fredericksburg FC TOPSoccer Buddy

TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a US-Soccer
sanctioned, community-based program for young athletes with disabilities.  The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, ages 4 -20+, who has an intellectual or physical disability.

What Is a TOPSoccer Buddy? A TOPSoccer buddy is basically asked to play soccer with the TOPSoccer athletes and just be there for them. It is a magical experience for  BOTH – the TOPSoccer player and the buddy!

Who Can Be a TOPSoccer Buddy? Any student or
athlete (regardless of soccer skill level) from age 8 & up can
participate. Adults are more than welcome as well!  Community service hour forms are passed out to all buddies at the conclusion of each session.
