Have you always wanted to create a bullying prevention design and share it with the community? If so, then here is your chance!
Hello, Bullying Prevention Enthusiasts!
On February 21, 2022 we kick off our STOMP Out Bullying™ T-Shirt Design Contest for the World Day of Bullying Prevention
October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. To signify its importance, STOMP Out Bullying™ created WORLD DAY OF BULLYING PREVENTION™ which is observed the first Monday of October — this year, Monday, October 3, 2022. On this day, we ask students, schools, and communities all over the world to wear BLUE together against bullying. Blue signifies peace.
You can be an integral part of the 2022 World Day of Bullying Prevention by designing a blue shirt that highlights this year’s theme of kindness and empathy. Please read our design requirements for more details.
Our team of selected judges will then make a pre-selection. The top three designs will make it into the online voting, which will start on May 15, 2022. The community can then vote for their favorite on our social media channels.
Afterward, the winning T-shirt will go into limited edition production and will be offered for sale on our website. In addition to receiving 4 shirts for the winner and their family, the winner will receive fame for eternity! Proceeds will go toward our STOMP Out Bullying™ HelpChat Line that assists students in need of help and at risk of suicide. Funds also support in-school education, changing the culture and other prevention programs; as well as public awareness and education, a dedicated website, brochures, our Educator's Bullying Prevention Toolkit and additional education and bullying prevention resources and materials. With your support, we work aggressively to help people understand how extreme bullying can get, to prevent bullying and cyberbullying in schools and communities, and we help those affected by it be able to move forward.
