BullyBust Honors WICKED

This year BullyBust and the National School Climate Center bring you, the BullyBust Outstanding Ambassador Award, which recognizes a key figure or organization that has gone above and beyond to help raise awareness for the BullyBust cause, and bring critical prevention supports to schools nationwide.  WICKED received this special honor because of the show's dedication to BullyBust and continued collaboration in helping to create concrete bully prevention resources for schools-in-need, including the Stand Up to Bullying supplements and "Defying Gravity" essay contest in 2010-11 and the Upstander Alliance toolkits and "For Good" video contest for this school year. Congratulations!

Broadway Show WICKED Teams Up with BullyBust!

The National School Climate Center (NSCC) is proud to be partnering with the Broadway musical WICKED to bring the Witches of Oz to life in classrooms across the country with critical bully prevention supports for the fall 2010 BullyBust Campaign. Elphaba, the misunderstood green witch at the heart of WICKED, will help students learn how to put an end to bullying for good as the spokesperson for BullyBust. Schools can get involved with the cause by joining the Partner School Program, which will provide classroom-based supports including WICKED-themed activities, resources, and a national “Defying Gravity” essay contest this fall.

Show your support for the cause! Use the code "CSEE" when purchasing tickets for WICKED on Broadway (online or at the box office), and a portion of the sale goes back to BullyBust! Read the full press release here.

BullyBust is an awareness campaign designed to reduce bullying in schools by teaching students and adults how to stand up to bullying and promote upstander behavior. An upstander is someone who witnesses bully behavior and does something about it. Use the resources on BullyBust.org to transform your school or community from one of passive bystanders to a community of positive upstanders. Together we can put an end to bullying!

Educators, get critical supports for your school and join a dedicated community of schools nationwide: Sign up for the Partner School Program today.
