Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month 2023 is coming in April and we are currently deciding the theme. Soldiers and Army Civilians submitted the ideas. The ARD Facebook page featured the submissions and is where Soldiers and the Army Family voted for their favorites. A panel of ARD headquarters leaders and SHARP program leaders will select one idea from the top three vote receivers based on creativity, messaging and theme.

The top three ideas were submitted by:

1. Sharlene M. Vega, SSG, USAR: Education of People + Everyone’s Action = Prevention

2. Jess Wilson, Space Brigade, Fort. Carson, Colorado: Intervene. We are a team.

3. Debra Browy, NETCOM ECED: It's only a moment for you but a lifetime for them.

The winning theme and visual concept (photo or graphic) will be featured in ARD print and digital materials for the Army’s SAAPM 2023 campaign, and the creator will receive a certificate of appreciation and an Army challenge coin.

Campaign materials will be available early next year on the ARD Products on Demand site https://marcomecentral.app.pti.com/Ironmark/ARDMaterials.
