No Bull Challenge

Presenting…the NO BULL Challenge! You all know by now how much we want to kick bullying to the curb both through Kidzworld and through our new project (which you helped us name!), Be Kind Online. But we need help and the more people get talking about cyberbullying, the better. So imagine how happy we were when we came across the NO BULL Challenge! It’s taking place all across America and is open to students from Grade 6 to Grade 12.

“The NO BULL Challenge is the largest, youth-led national campaign against cyberbullying in America's history. We're using the power of social media to inspire 25 million middle and high school students to build each other up, instead of tearing each other down.”

This super cool campaign invites students to make their own anti-cyberbullying videos. The top 1500 submissions all win an incredible swag bag filled with all sorts of prizes! AND if your video is one of the top 15, you and a friend get to go to on an all expenses paid trip to the NO BULL Red Carpet Awards at the Masonic Center in San Francisco on July 21, 2012! Not to give any of the surprises away but there are some pretty high profile celebs going…

We got to chat with Shawn Marie Edginton, the creator of the NO BULL Challenge. As a Mom, she saw firsthand what cyberbullying could do, with her own daughter being cyberbullied. Getting kids to tell their stories and show that they weren’t going to take any bull from bullying is an awesome idea and what better way to tell those stories than by video? If any of you want an awesome resource about how to maneuver the social media landscape, take a look at Shawn’s book, “The Parent's Guide to Texting, Facebook, and Social Media: Understanding the Benefits and Dangers of Parenting in a Digital World.

 

For more information on contest rules, go to their website. This is an amazing project and we’re excited to know that there are giant campaigns for you, by you. Part of what we are doing here with Kidzworld and Be Kind Online is getting you guys talking about all kinds of things that impact your lives. So if you see a cool project or campaign like this one, let us know!

Happy filming!

you can be fairly certain of your orientation at about any age around thirteen, or younger, too, maybe, but i do think that you'd need a more extensive understanding of sexuality before you're actually sure? your own sexuality and of sexuality in general. i mean, there is this misconception about sga orientations being s*x-central, which isn't true, since a young kid can have crushes on the same gender without even knowing about s*x at all in the first place. still, this is the difference between having an idea of your orientation and being certain of it (even if you may not be certain for many years after adolescence, too. it's not obligatory to figure it out before 20 or something). and it's really never too young for anybody to realize and acknowledge their attraction towards the same gender, it's just a matter of, will that attraction last for long enough after that for you to come out as the respective orientation? it's not just that you, as a girl, may be attracted to girls and boys now and later may just be attracted to boys--it could go totally the other way and find that you actually are only attracted to girls, but that only depends on your specific case and i don't know the details. it's fine to experiment with these labels i guess, but it's fair to say that many people will stop taking you seriously once you come out twice, thrice or more times as different things, because you hadn't thought it through properly. not to say that a single move like this that you do at thirteen will prove to be fatal or anything, though, if you live in a community that wouldn't put you at actual danger upon coming out, that is. you don't have to even choose a label if in the end you're not really sure, there shouldn't be pressure to do so. just go with something general and you'll get the point across. also keep in mind that 'coming out' isn't just a one time thing, and it's actually a continuous thing. sexuality won't come up in every discussion and you won't just go around yelling 'i'm gay!' around the whole city or something, you'll need to tell a lot of new people about it if you choose to and it will keep coming up. you can be out at school, but not at home. you can be out with friends, but not with the whole class. etc.  coming out isn't even such an important aspect in the first place if you ask me and it's a bonus pressure if you will. coming out will eventually come naturally when you get a same-gender partner and all, anyway, if you don't want to hide it forever or anything. good luck with that choice (in case i'm not too late with this reply, in which case good luck to whoever might be reading this for their own issue).
