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.
‘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.
