K – 6 Bullying Prevention Poster Contest

Entry Deadline: Friday, October 11, 2019

October is National Bullying Prevention Month.  Minnesota Association for Children’s Mental Health is pleased to announce the very first Safe Guard – Allies Against Bullying Poster Contest!

Eligibility
Contest is open to artists in Kindergarten through 6th grade who live in Minnesota.

Prizes
Winning posters will be featured on our website and social media during October for Bullying Prevention Month.  Artists will receive a $20 gift card.

Instructions
Freeze Out, the Queen of Ice-olation, is causing trouble. She chooses a kid to bully and then uses her Cold Shoulder Crystal to turn all of the their friends and classmates against them.  Soon no one will play with them or talk to them. Then she can tease the kid as much as she wants because she knows no one will do anything to stop her. The kid feels helpless and alone. That’s where we need YOUR help!

Create a poster on 8.5” x 11” paper (or the digital equivalent) that shows the Safe Guard helping someone being bullied by Freeze Out

Your poster must:
1. Feature at least one hero from the Safe Guard.
2. Show a non-violent solution to stop Freeze Out.
3. Have a written message that combats bullying.
4. Be drawn, painted, or digitally created entirely by YOU!

Scan or photograph your poster, and then complete the Safe Guard Art Contest Entry Form and upload your artwork. Good luck!
