AntiBullying Poster Contest at Julie’s Art Room

Date: 9/19/2014

Portsmouth, OH
618 11th Street

I have taken upon myself to try and help children in my area become aware of the reality of bullying.  One child just recently took his own life here in my community due to bullying, and I don’t want to see one more.  Children ages 11-16 will submit a poster at least 11 x 14 in size with their own version of what it means to be an "anti-bully".  I will present the winner $50 from my own pocket and also display the posters in my gallery at a reception.
