layla valteau of de la salle high school in new orleans receives award for essay in prom contest

The Spring Bling contest required students from New Orleans area high schools to write essays on how they would handle a friend who’s suicidal. Layla Valteau from De La Salle High School, the winner of the contest, addressed the subject from a personal point of view. In her essay she spoke of an incident with a friend that led her to step up and use her voice. Layla wrote:

I finally understood that it takes a lot to speak up, it takes a lot to save someone’s life…I would instantly say, without any other thought in my mind, that I’d tell someone, anyone.

As the winner of Spring Bling, Layla was granted a $2,500 scholarship, a surprise pizza party/pep rally at her school, and dinner and a limo ride for 10 on the night of prom. The Morris Bart law firm would like to sincerely thank Crimestoppers and Q93 for asking us to sponsor this event for a worthy cause. We wish all high school students a safe and fun prom night!
