Kauai keiki have chance to stop a bully, win an iPad

Keiki from preschool through high school are eligible for an opportunity to win an iPad in the anti-bullying slogan contest hosted by the Department of Health, Children with Special Needs program.

“The contest is simple,” said Clara Mackler of the DOH Children with Special Health Needs Program. “Create a slogan, or catchy phrase, which encourages students to stop bullying other students and to start treating one another with respect.”

The submissions need to be dropped off to Mackler, 3060 Umi Street in Lihue by July 8. The submission must include the student’s name, phone number, and school along with the slogan.

The winning slogan will be featured on all islandwide Anti-Bullying Campaign promotional materials and in the upcoming anti-bullying logo contest, walk-a-thon, and legislative forum. Winners for the slogan contest will be selected on July 17 and will be presented with an award and the prize iPad at the 2014 anti-bullying legislative forum on Sept. 11.

“All children benefit when bullying is not tolerated, and we promote kindness and good will to everyone,” Mackler said.
