NINETH ANNUAL VIDEO CONTEST
Deadline is May 31, 2017 - Scroll down for rules & regulations
 



INSTRUCTIONS FOR VIDEO: 
Most of us have witnessed someone being bullied but we don't do anything to help. In fact statistics show that 75% of those involved in bullying situations are bystanders who either urge the bully on or do nothing. So many of us see bullying happen but we don't step in to help the person or persons being bullied.
This is awful because some students are choosing to end their lives because of being bullying and feeling that no one cares.

Winner of Hey U.G.L.Y.'s 3rd Annual Contest  (2012/2013 School Year)
Anti Bullying Video Contest Winner
Click picture above to watch DEAR BULLY, the winning video for 2012/2013.
DEAR BULLY, intertwines bullying scenes with popular music whose lyrics tell the story of all aspects of bullying. One of the most salient points of the film is when the bully explains to the victim ...“the reason why I bully you is because I’m insecure.”  Pictured above, left to right, are the students who wrote and acted in the video: Virginia Henrici, Shannon Lamb and Julia Barton-Biegelsen, from Eastern Middle School in Maryland.
Anti-Bullying Video Contest Honorable Mention
Click picture above to watch DON’T BE A BULLY BE A SAVIOR, a video that won special mention in 2012/2013. DON’T BE A BULLY BE A SAVIOR is a powerful film that enacts various bullying scenarios and ends with a slide show of famous people who were bullied ranging from Rev. Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks to modern day celebrities and political figures. It helps us all see that we don’t have to give in to the bully; we can actually grow stronger because of their taunts. Pictured above, left to right, are the students who created the video: Alya Fawal, Addele Hargenrader and Elizabeth Budin, from Eastern Middle School in Maryland.
Both videos were created under the tutelage of Warren V. Scheib III, Media Teacher and Newspaper Advisor at the school.
