Stop Bullying Challenge

October is Bullying Prevention Month and www.stopbullying.gov is challenging your students to create a “Stop Bullying Video.” This challenge invites youth ages 13-18 to create a 30 to 60 second video that will inform and motivate youth to prevent bullying, and that promotes an environment where kindness and respect for others matters. Learn more at http://stopbullying.challenge.gov/.  

If your students participate in this challenge send us a copy of your video at jennifer.woodley@gpaea.org to be featured on our website and facebook page!

Resources for Districts:

  • www.stopbullying.gov  (managed by the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services – excellent source of information and resources.  Schools can send away for free resource kits).
