How to Prevent Bullying/Cyberbullying
Essay Contest for 6th & 7th Graders
Judging is underway -Winners to be announced soon!
Bullying is so prevalent these days, especially with social media. Sometimes a little creativity can be used to show our students a better way. As a result, Rotary District 7730 is holding a “Four-Way Test” essay contest for 6th and 7th-grade students. The essay prompt is “How the Four-Way Test can prevent/reduce bullying and cyber-bullying”.
District 7730 comprises a diverse and innovative set of 50 Rotary Clubs from 14 counties with over 1600 Rotarians. Brunswick County Rotary clubs include Southport, Southport Evening, Shallotte, South Brunswick Islands, and Leland Rotary Clubs.
The 4-Way Test is one of the guiding principles for Rotarians. It is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings.
The essay contest is open to all 6th and 7th-grade students. Essays should be submitted to the schools by February 10, 2023. The students should receive or request the entry forms from Literacy teachers at school. Cash prizes for top entries.
