>Creative Expression Contest Includes High School Video Category
The contest, which is comprised of essays, poetry, music, original artwork, or other pieces give students the opportunity to convey their experiences and feelings about name-calling, and propose ideas for putting a stop to verbal bullying in their schools and communities.
The deadline is Friday, March 5, which means this weekend is your last chance to get your friends together to create an impressive video for the Creative Expression Contest. Who knows, you may very well end up a winner!
Just to remind you, here are the guidelines for the three categories this year:
Primary School (Grades K – 5)
