October is National Anti-Bullying Prevention month and Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco is partnering with the San Francisco District Attorney’s office to sponsor a video contest for middle and high school students in San Francisco.
The video contest is called “Bye Bye Bullying” and the submission period starts on Oct. 3rd and ends Nov. 7th, 2012.
The purpose of this campaign is to increase awareness about the effects of bullying on students and to encourage positive responses towards bullying.
We would love your assistance in spreading awareness among students and parents in our effort to ensure a bully-free environment in our schools.

- Effective Ways to Respond to Bullying. What positive responses have teachers, administrators and/or classmates provided to address bullying and harassment at school?
