Bullying is a growing problem in our society. Children cannot seem to escape the bullying. They face it in school, on the playground, in texts, at home, on social media, the list goes on and on.
Cleveland 19 News and the Becker Law Firm have created the campaign 2STRONG4BULLIES not only to help protect the children being bullied but to encourage the bystanders to SPEAK UP against bullying! We decided the age where we could most make an impact and spark change is with 3rd through 6th graders. That's why we've come up with a contest and we are asking for your help!!!
We are looking for 3rd through 6th grades to help us create a book about bullying that we will publish!
How do you enter?
3rd through 6th grades can choose any of the following topics to draw and write about:
We will select 25 DRAWINGS. There will be 24 First Prize Winners and One Grand Prize Winner.
Please let your children know even if they aren't chosen to be in our book, they are still "winners" in their efforts to fight bullying! Together we hope we can save lives by simply teaching our children to SPEAK UP or STAND UP to bullying. We want every child to know people do care about them and it's OK to be different. Be #2STRONG4BULLIES! We encourage you to talk to you students and/or children about BULLYING and DEPRESSION (feeling sad all the time), ANXIETY (worrying or nervous about things you can't control) and even SUICIDE.
So grab a pencil, crayon or marker and encourage your children to send us their drawings!
