Kids urged to tackle bullying

Have your say

YOUNG Wearsiders are being urged to design a poster to help stamp out bullying.

The Anti-Bullying Alliance (Aba) has launched a competition to get people thinking about the issues ahead of Anti-Bullying Week in November, where the theme will be “We’re better without bullying”.

Young people are being asked to design a visual statement for their sports, drama, music or any extra-curricular club which makes it clear that bullying is not accepted.

The statement can be presented as a poster/flyer, emblem or screensaver and a panel of young people will shortlist the entries.

The top five will be displayed on the Aba website and entered into a prize draw to win an England football shirt signed by the team.

Co-ordinator of the Anti-Bullying Alliance, Lauren Seager-Smith, said: “We need to work with all children and young people to prevent and stop bullying wherever they learn and play.”

Entries need to be submitted by July 27. More details can be found at
