Share Your Ideas to Help Build CommUNITY

Inviting K-12 students, with support from adults, to share their ideas on how kids and youth can help build a kinder, more accepting, and inclusive community within their school or classroom. All submissions will be eligible for the opportunity to be featured on NBPC websites to be viewed by youth around the country. There is even the chance to receive some amazing prizes! This activity is a creative way for adults to engage youth in conversation while involving them in developing bullying prevention resources that can help educate their peers.

Why CommUNITY?

It’s a term that describes a group of people who prioritize coming together for a common goal. When a community is unified, there are stronger connections among individuals that can help promote environments that are kinder, more accepting, and inclusive.
