What is Your Idea to Stop Bullying?
Energize Students is taking a stand against bullying and we'd like you to join our cause! If you are a teenager (14-19 yrs old), here is your chance to be part of the solution! You may have lived it, you may have feared it, you may have witnessed it, we've all been a part of bullying at one time or another and we want to know what lengths you would go to help protect others from the devastating effects of bullying. Together, we can "say NO to bullying" and make school a safe environment for all students. All it takes is for one person to stand up to it!
How does it work?
** NOTE: Before submitting, please download the Contest Requirements Sheet for full details on how to submit your essay and video. **
Students are asked to submit a video of 4 minutes or less portraying a bullying situation, story line, parody, or scene and what they would do to make a stand against bullying. Energize Students will choose the top videos and then you'll be given the opportunity to vote for your favorite submissions.
Submission period is from August 13 - November 5, 2012. All submissions will be viewable until the voting period. The Energize Students team will then choose the top finalists for the voting period and contact the finalists. The voting period will commence November 12 - 19, 2012. The top 3 videos that receive the most votes will win cash prizes of up to $800.
All submissions confirm that students have received parental consent to enter the "Say NO to Bullying" Contest and that all students are between the ages of 14 and 19 years old. Those students who qualify for the voting period will be required to submit a completed Contest Consent Form by parent(s) or legal guardian(s).
You must be registered to vote and may vote only once per day during the voting period. Energize Students reserves the right at its sole discretion to disqualify any entry at any time to preserve the integrity of the contest if voting discrepancies occur.
