Bullying has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons – here’s your chance to change that
Every day girls – and boys – are bullied for the way they look, for their music taste, for which school they go to… Bullies have an endless number of reasons for picking on others, but none of them justify what they’re doing. Which is why we’re looking for a talented Sugar Scaper to design an eye-popping poster as part of our Sugar/ChildLine Stand Up, Speak Out 2008 campaign.
ChildLine (working with the Anti-Bullying Alliance) and Sugar want to encourage everyone to speak out about bullying. YOUR poster could be what makes someone ask for help or report a bully. It’s easy to enter and the winning poster will be displayed in thousands of schools around the country. We can’t wait to see your amazing designs!
How to enter
1. Design a poster
What would make you stop and think about bullying? We
