The exhibit stems from a contest in which students are asked "What does a happy family look like?" The contest's goal is for students to express what they feel "A Happy Family Looks Like" through their own perspectives, expressions, and creativity, while helping families develop and foster positive age appropriate communication with their children about Domestic Violence during October's Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Students also discovere families come in all shapes and sizes.
The Exhibition and Reception will display all of the many different types of happy families through the eyes of and produced by students of the Lockport Area. Prizes will be awarded to each grade category: Grades K-4, Grades 5-6, Grades 7-8, and Grades 9-12
