Cash prizes for primary schools in our anti-bullying story competition!

Next week is Anti-Bulllying Week (14-18 November). To mark it we are launching a competition for primary schools in England.

Children are encouraged to write a story or poem to convey the hurt caused by verbal bullying. Winners will receive a cash prize of up to £100 to spend on behalf of their class.

The competition is run by our Go-Givers programme for primary citizenship teaching. A selection of the best entries will be displayed on the Go-Givers website.

'Stop and think - words can hurt.' Anti-Bullying Week, 14-18 November 2011 This year Anti-Bulllying Week has the theme Stop and think - words can hurt. The Anti-Bullying Alliance, which organises Anti-Bullying Week, says in its briefing paper:

‘Verbal bullying is commonplace amongst young people – even if, as in some instances, younger children use these words without understanding their meaning'.

Go-Givers lessons and interactive tools provide cross-curricular opportunities for taking the issue of conflict from the school setting into a wider societal context. They aim to tackle bullying in its many forms, from racism to homophobia to cyberbullying.

The competition closes on Friday 25 November 2011.
