The holiday has gone and past: a time for family, sharing, and Broadway plays! It only seems appropriate to share this recent article. Stomp Out Bullying, and The Musical, A Christmas Story have teamed up to put together an Anti-Bullying Writing Contest. Participants of this contest were middle schools students who submitted an essay about how bullying has affected them in their personal life, either that they witnessed, or have been directly affected.
The winner of the contest, Ahmed Shayef, was announced, and was able to appear in The Musical, A Christmas Story, on December 27. The runner-up, and third place winners also got to attend A Christmas Story.
During this time of the year, it is always great to hear touching stories, and events, or contests in this situation, reaching out spreading the word about how kids can be heard! Bullying can be found in many forms, and what better way to get kids involved in spreading the word, than to tell their own stories for others to hear!
