New Video, 'Teen Talk on Cyberbullying,' released
“Teen Talk on Cyberbullying,” an unscripted video designed to provide authentic insight and perspective from peers on issues related to cyberbullying, is now available online. The video is part of Students with Solutions, an initiative that engages students to address bullying through videos, art, and writing.
This is the second contest offered through Students with Solutions. This round is presented in partnership with Clarisonic. After viewing and discussing the video, students can share their poetry or stories, create a drawing, film a short video, or design a graphic that are then eligible for awards, including Clarisonic's MIA 1 sonic facial cleansing device.

The Unity Awards honor and celebrate students and community members who have gone above and beyond to help address bullying. Everyone is invited to nominate an individual or group for one of four national awards.
This event is sponsored by the National Bullying Prevention Center’s youth advisory board, The Faces of Change.
Erin Barlow is now available as National Ambassador and motivational speaker
Erin Barlow, a Theater major at UCLA, is available to speak to middle and high school students around the United States. It is Barlow’s mission to let all know they are not alone.
“If you have been bullied, please know that everyone deserves to be safe, respected and valued,” Barlow said at PACER’s Annual Benefit in April 2016. “Never let others determine your self-worth. Striving for happiness and getting help was the best decision I made. I didn’t give up on myself and neither should you.”
This section of the National Bullying Prevention Center website features frequently asked questions about topics such as “What is bullying?” and “Is conflict the same as bullying?”
Responses are provided in a variety of formats, including the 60-second version, image, and article.
