respectme are delighted to announce the launch of our ‘Change Starts With Us’ Award!
Since the launch of our ‘Change Starts With Us’ campaign in October 2019, young people in schools and youth-organisations across Scotland have been leading on an impressive range of anti-bullying activity, from assemblies and lessons using our resources, to staff pledges, youth presentations, art displays and even videos.
To properly acknowledge the work of these young people, we will hold a campaign finale event in early June. We now are calling on schools and youth organisations to nominate themselves for the award by telling us about any youth-led anti-bullying work they have been delivering since October.
Young people from six shortlisted applications will be invited to the final event to ‘pitch’ the work they have done to a panel of judges. The winning pitch will be awarded £250 to continue and/or develop their anti-bullying activity.
Submissions are now open for schools and youth groups to submit their anti-bullying activity.
Please note: activity will not be judged on length of time delivered, so there is still time to begin anti-bullying activity and tell us about it before the deadline. If you need ideas, you can download our campaign toolkit here.
Nominations will be shortlisted against the following three criteria:
