Do you have a great idea to put an end to bullying? In 500 words or more, design a "bullying prevention and kindness" initiative that you believe would have a positive and measurable impact on ending bullying in your school or community. Propose actionable steps that could be peer-implemented to cultivate a safer, more empathetic and inclusive environment. Consider the importance of your peers (and administration) to “believe in” and support your plan, and any possible costs. Your perspective and insight as a teenager and a student is key.

Essays will be assessed on creativity (thinking outside of the box), personalization, feasibility (the chance of implementation) and knowledge of the subject of bullying and its consequences.
What grade are you in?
Which social media handle did you follow us on?

One winning essay will be selected by a panel of BAFP Board Directors and Executive Director, and announced on October 1st, 2024. Teen Kindness Board and Kindness Club members are encouraged to apply. Family of BAFP staff and Board Directors/Officers are excluded from applying. The panel will be given essays to read without author names or identifying information, essay only.
