Last week, Secretary Duncan called on America’s youth to take the Stop Bullying Video Challenge.
Today, HRSA asks you to follow his lead.
On behalf of HRSA and the Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention, encourage the youth in your life to submit original PSAs, 30 to 60 seconds in length, that showcase ways they are taking action against bullying and promoting a culture of kindness and respect in their communities.
HRSA is looking for informative and entertaining videos that a send positive message to youth about the importance of being “more than a bystander” to bullying in their schools and communities.
Full details about the contest, including submission guidelines and rules for eligibility are available at stopbullying.challenge.gov. Please note that the deadline for submissions is October 14, 2012 at 11 PM ET. Youth between 13 and 18 years old are eligible to participate, however those under 18 years of age must have permission from a parent or guardian. The contest winner will receive a grand prize of $2,000, with the two runner-ups earning $500 each.
Here’s how you can take action:
· Watch Secretary Duncan’s video
· Work with youth to enter the challenge
· Forward this message to your networks
