“I Am An Upstander!” Challenge

Bullying has an impact on all community members. To promote safe and supportive schools, prevention must be considered a community-wide ongoing effort. In many ways, youth across the nation are working on this prevention effort by committing positive and meaningful upstander acts.

We want to hear from you! Through the I Am an Upstander Challenge, NSCC's BullyBust campaign invites youth ages 13-18 to share how you are promoting kindness and respect for others by being upstanders in your communities through a one minute video or art/print submission. Using the prompts here, start the fall season with an effort to Stand-Up Against Bullying and share your inspiring upstander message. The Grand Prize winner will receive $500 from NSCC to continue your upstander efforts!! To Get Started:

If a student is under 18 years of age at the time of entry, NSCC requires written permission from a parent or guardian. Slips do not need to be submitted with entry.
