ABOUT THE NO BULL CHALLENGE

The Great American NO BULL Challenge is a leadership and social action organization that uses the power of social media and the magic of filmmaking to inspire students to create short films or PSAs that inspire change on the important issues affecting today’s youth.

 

NO BULL empowers students to stand up and say NO BULL to those who spread hatred about subjects like:  Bullying, Violence, Drug/Alcohol Abuse, Inequality, Hatred, Suicide, Internet Addiction, LGBT and Obesity. 

 

 

The Challenge's Objectives
  • To provide an actionable, leadership opportunity and platform for students, ages 13-23.  

  • To offer a powerful peer-to-peer education/leadership program, at no cost, to anyone anywhere.

  • To compliment a school or organizations focus by providing a call-to-action for their students.

  • To offer Student Internships that add experience and provide leadership skills that are often difficult to obtain.

  • To work together to transform schools and communities into places where empathy and respect are valued and hatred is unacceptable.

  • Create a grassroots movement by America’s students in order to increase and reinforce awareness of anti-hatred. 

  • Increase the number of schools, companies and community-based organizations engaged in educating our students, our educators and our public about social action isses affecting today's youth. 

  • Improve school climate and promote caring, inclusive school communities that emphasize respect for all.
