ATTENTION TEACHERS: YOUR STUDENTS CAN BE PART OF THE BULLYING PREVENTION SOLUTION
As part of its “Students with Solutions” campaign, PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center has launched an exciting contest for K-12 classrooms. Teachers can enter their students’ art, poetry, stories or graphics in response to watching a new animated video series and engaging in class discussion. Among the prizes are LilGadget headphones, classroom pizza parties, books, medals, and rolls of DuckTape. The contest closes on January 31, and winners will be announced in February.
