Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen today is calling on all creative Santa Clara County High School Seniors to help us design a safe, soothing office space where our attorneys meet with young children who have been sexually assaulted.
 
The winning student designer will have their signed creation painted on the walls of this special office space and receive $500. The second place student will receive $300, and the third place winner will receive $200.
 
“We want this space to be as comfortable as possible under these circumstances,” Assistant District Attorney Terry Harman said. “We want the mural to be colorful, creative, and convey a message of peace and hope.”
