National Contest Encourages Youth to Create Anti-Bullying Videos

The deadline for entries in the Stop Bullying Video Challenge, a joint project of the Department of Health and Human Services and ChallengePost, steadily approaches, with the last date for submissions penciled in for Oct. 14 at 11 PM EDT.

The Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention have invited teens, ages 13-18, to create public service announcement videos, 30-60 seconds in length, promoting anti-bullying behavior. The grand prize winner of the contest will receive $2,000, while two runner-up entries will receive $500 apiece. All three videos will then be hosted on the official [] website.

Entries will be assessed based on message, theme appropriateness, originality, creativity, audience appeal and overall quality. Following a two-month judging period, public voting will take place to determine the top entries. The winning videos are scheduled be announced on Dec. 20 at 5 pm.

Youth seeking to enter the contest are required to register at the official Stop Bullying Video Challenge website. An adult is required to submit the video on the entrant’s behalf.
