  • The Collaborative for Colchester's Children recently launched a hashtag campaign, #Colchester4Kids, to bring awareness to the Search Institute's Developmental Assets which are the support and strengths kids need in order to succeed. The campaign was kicked off with a Relationship Challenge, where all Colchester families are invited to participate in activities from the Challenge checklist and post photos to social media with the hashtag. Families are encouraged to do more together and let their children choose as much as possible. Prizes will be awarded every week in February for pick up at Cragin Library during open hours. To obtain the checklist and learn more about what's behind #Colchester4kids, visit: Colchester C3/Colchester4kids
