Say Something Week is a week to try to prevent gun violence before it happens. This Say Something Week started when, in New Connecticut, a school had a shooting that fatally injured 20 kids between 6-7 years of age. So Sandy Hook started to sponsor other schools that want to participate in Say Something Week.

October 24-28 is Say Something Week at Harvest. Over 1,000 schools across America participate in Say Something Week every year. The way to win the award is to apply for it, and also to participate in Say Something Week.

Harvest Middle school was one of the schools to apply for it and we won. The teacher who won the award is Ms Zorn, who teaches ELA and a Leadership class. Her 8th period Leadership class won the award for Say Something Week. HMS feels very honored to win this award out all the schools that they could have picked.
