Want to help protect bald eagles? You can! Just enter the Eagles Forever! Story and Art Contest by April 30, 2006 and you and three friends could win a trip to Washington, DC!
Eagles Forever! - American Eagle (No, Not the Store)
The bald eagle is America's national bird. It represents freedom cuz it has the freedom to fly anywhere and everywhere it wants - but you won't find bald eagles anywhere else in the world except North America. The bald eagle almost became extinct because of the deadly pesticide DDT, which caused eggshell thinning. But thanks to the Endangered Species Act, bald eagles have been protected since 1973. Though the bald eagle has fought back from near-extinction, new legislation is now threatening to "delist" the bald eagle (removing it from the national endangered species list).
Eagles Forever! - A Smart Symbol for America
You may remember Amy Smart from movies like Just Friends, Starsky & Hutch and The Butterfly Effect with Ashton Kutcher, but the role that she loves most is standing up for America's environment and wildlife. She's a board member of Heal the Bay and the Environmental Media Association, and volunteers with her mom to help protect endangered animals. She's now involved in the Eagles Forever! contest as one of the judges, and she can't wait to see your art and story submissions!
Eagles Forever! - Contest Details
Show America that you care about bald eagles by entering the Eagles Forever! Story and Art Contest.

The winner will travel to Washington, DC with three friends or family members, and runners-up will receive a $200 gift certificate to Amazon.com and a one-year subscription to National Geographic Kids magazine.

If you're willing to face the consequences, then yes. I know a lot of people say violence is never the answer, but in truth it sometimes is. If you really want somebody to leave you alone, then fight. If you win, it shows that you're dominant over that person and hopefully he/she will leave you alone.
Honestly, I think it's better to get your feelings out sooner rather than later- maybe ask him why he's being mean to you... Though, don't say it in such a way that annoys boys... If you know what I mean.
