      COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina's top federal prosecutor is sponsoring a contest for school children to design a logo for future publications promoting gun violence prevention.

      U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles' office is sponsoring the 11th Annual Project Sentry Logo Contest. The statewide contest gives students a chance to show how they prevent gun violence in school by designing a logo for upcoming publications.

      Any South Carolina student enrolled in elementary, middle or high school can enter. Winners in four grade categories receive a $50 cash award. The overall winner receives additional cash and is featured in Project Sentry publications.
