East Lyme, CT
Melissa's Gold Award project was designed to teach children safety skills, stranger danger, crosswalk safety, bike safety and traffic safety while providing an optimum play area for students in the Flanders area. Melissa designed a grid to mimic the Flanders Four Corners and made a DVD to help with instruction. Melissa's Flanders Safety Town Village is available to everyone in the community to help mentor good safety practices. Melissa is attending the University of New Hampshire.
