Four students from the South Shore are hoping to stop a terrible virus from spreading.
The Department of Education joined forces Evan Hennigar, Grace Adams, Connor Zink and Maggie Baxter from Bayview Community School, to create an anti-cyberbullying campaign. After submitting the campaign idea, “People, not profiles” when the Department of Education put out a call for ideas, these students were selected to work with professionals in developing a province-wide campaign.
Cyberbullying is positioned as a “virus” sweeping through our schools and communities. The campaign asks youth to consider the people, not the profiles, when using social media. Check out the website, view the campaign video, the images available to be used as Facebook and Twitter photos, and see the video that started it all, created by Evan, Grace, Connor and Maggie.
