Stop the Bleeding, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering accountability in the U.S Virgin Islands community regarding the mistreatment, violence, abuse and hurt of our children and families through effective communication, inter-agency collaboration, and responsible action.
We, along with the VI Lottery and Law Enforcement Planning Commission (LEPC) are super excited about your participation in our upcoming “Step 4 Peace” competition.
This is the first competition of its kind that offers the youth of our Virgin Islands an opportunity to creatively develop and sharpen skills like teamwork, team building, conflict resolution, leadership, and more.
They’ll be working with experienced, responsible members of various fraternities and sororities as they develop their performance.
“Step 4 Peace” is open to all public and private schools in the USVI from 4th thru 12th grade. A maximum of five teams, and a minimum of two, will be accepted to compete in one of three divisions: Elementary (4th – 6th grade), Junior (7th – 8th), and Senior (9th – 12th). If less than two applications are received for a particular division, that division will be scrapped and the next five applications will be accepted. For example, if only 1 application is received in the STT/STJ district for the Junior division, we'll accept the next five applications which mean there may be an increase in teams for one or both of the other divisions.
The St. Croix competition will be held on January 29, 2011 and the St. Thomas/St. John competition will be held on February 5, 2011.
First place winners from each district will compete on St. Croix for the over-all championship on 02/19/11.
We look forward to seeing you at this competition and welcome any questions or comments you may have after you review the included rules and regulations and other documents.
