1st Place: East Central Indiana Critical Incident Stress Management Team (CISM)

2nd Place: Rushville FFA

Random Draw: Mays Community Academy School


  • East Central Indiana Critical Incident Stress Management Team (CISM) – This unique community resource is comprised of a group of dedicated community professionals from East Central Indiana who trained volunteers are providing supportive services to the community at no charge. The members of this team are trained in both defusing critical incidents shortly after their occurrence and debriefing involved individuals in the days that follow the incident. Many of the members know what it is like to experience a traumatic event, having survived similar situations or by having professional experience assisting in similar situations. CISM works with healthcare professionals, law enforcement, fire departments, dispatchers and volunteers to help reduce emotional tension and prevent poor outcomes such as suicide. We often forget to take care of those who take care of us and our community on a daily basis.
  • Mays Community Academy School – Mays Academy goes above & beyond for kids with learning disabilities or non. The Cafeteria ladies make the children feel special & enjoy the children. The school staff members work as a Team for “OUR CHILDREN”.
  • Rushville FFA – The Rushville FFA chapter works hard to serve the community that the students live in. Service is a pillar of agricultural education. The Rushville FFA is responsible for growing the future leaders of Rush County. By growing the future leaders, the Rushville FFA chapter participates in numerous career development events to grow members as students, leaders, and citizens.
