Anti-bullying competitions 2011 (Archive)
Two great competitions for 2011!
What do you think about bullying?
In 2011 Hampshire ran a leaflet competition for children and young people from age 5 - 18 years. They were asked to produce a leaflet for other young people to communicate key messages about bullying and strategies to prevent or deal with it.
The leaflets were to be: informative, colourful and attactive to other young people. We had over 200 entries from pupils aged 6 - 15 years from 12 different schools.
The ten prize winners were awarded their prizes and certificates at the Young People's Anti-Bullying Conference in Winchester on 14 October 2011.
These stickers 209kb are to be downloaded and printed onto stickers for young people to give to anyone (adults and other pupils) if they feel the other person has made a difference in some way, e.g. been a good friend, stood up for them, spoken out against bullying/unkind words, helped run an anti-bullying campaign, been a good peer mentor, helped sort out a bullying problem etc.

The Anti-bullying Alliance is delighted to partner with Stand Tall: A Rock Musical to promote this year’s Anti-Bullying Week competition.
Shrill Productions’ Stand Tall: A Rock Musical is based on the story of David and Goliath, except in the show David has swapped his sling for a guitar! The show uses music to encourage the audience to think about bullying in a new light. The show won a Diana Award for its support for tackling bullying and has been met with huge praise. Author Philip Pullman has this to say about Stand Tall: A Rock Musical - ‘A great idea, a wonderful and terrific show…A project to counter bullying with music is a winner.’
The competition is open to all primary and secondary schools in England, and involves the following simple steps:
- Teachers/ staff download a powerpoint presentation from www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk to support an assembly or a lesson that introduces the theme of Anti-Bullying week 2011 and encourages students to think about and discuss bullying. The presentation includes teachers’ notes to guide the general discussion about bullying, and gives enough flexibility to adjust for primary or secondary age students.
- The presentation introduces 3 songs from Stand Tall: A Rock Musical. As a school or a class, you vote on which song you think is best at getting across a strong anti-bullying message.
- There is a short description of each song within the presentation, or full lyrics are available to download from www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk
- Teachers/staff fill in the short online entry form on www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk to win the chance of producers from Stand Tall: a Rock Musical visiting their school to work with students to record the winning track. The deadline for entry is 5pm on Friday 29th July 2011. The winning school will be notified at the beginning of the autumn term.
Schools or youth groups may be interested in staging Stand Tall: A Rock Musical or songs from the show. This is one fantastic and creative way that young people can take part in Anti-Bullying week 2011!
