Congratulations to the 2022 Unity Award Recipients
We celebrate and honor the ten individuals and groups who were selected from hundreds who were nominated by peers to be recognized for their contributions and accomplishments to help prevent bullying and promote kindness, acceptance, and inclusion for all. Read the stories of three teen recipients, along with a school group.
National Bullying Prevention Month (NBPM) held during October | Unity Day is the third Wednesday of October
A month long event to prevent childhood bullying and promote kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. On Unity Day, plan to wear and share the color orange — as a tangible representation of the supportive, universal message that our society wants to prevent bullying, and is united for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.

Student Action Plan Against Bullying
Ready to take action to address bullying? Maybe not sure how to start? As a student, bullying is something that impacts you, your peers, and your school – whether you’re the target of bullying, a witness, or the person who bullies. Bullying can end, but that won’t happen unless students, parents, and educators work together and take action.
I care because it can give someone, worse memory and trauma. And, bullying never stop if I don't care about it.
Bullies never win because they are weak, learn to defend yourself and don’t allow people’s negative word to water down your greatness.
Remember that you are beautiful!
I care because... no one should ever have to go to school feeling scared and alone. School should be a safe place to be.
bullying affects multiple people and it is not right for someone to bring all their problems out on another. It also isn't right to make fun of people because of their differences.
I care because people get bullied and they can't do anything about it sometimes they are too scared to ask for help.
I care because I don’t think it’s right or fair for any living being to ever. Have to endure or deal with anything continuously cause of others. People all have rights and should be able to live their lives freely. Free from harm, free from harassment, free from humiliation, free from any type of bullying. A lot of people only act out purely cause of their egos. Bullies want nothing more than to have power and control over everyone and everything. They want the spotlight and want no one to take it from them. But deep down they just are like everyone else hurting cause of something they did or other people did. And I know that people make mistakes and do bad things. But nobody ever should have to suffer forever for the actions that are of others.
I stand for anyone that has to deal with bullying or mental health and say you're not ever alone. You are better than the schools the peers and maybe even the society. That neglects, mistreats and doubts maybe even look down upon you. Everyone is capable of the things they don’t believe themselves to be capable of. Everyone is capable of getting better cause rather life is easy or hard always everything is never as it seems.
People are their own worst enemies but people can overcome all their struggles and obstacles they are facing. You, me or anyone doesn’t have to do this alone. So I say we should not overlook each other with the perception of only seeing, noticing or knowing the negative things we or other people may have done. But instead look for the positive things about each other. Because we aren’t our mistakes we aren’t our flaws we aren’t what makes us all imperfect. We are stronger than we believe and think ourselves to be we are more knowledge than we think. We are more capable than we believe ourselves to be. So I speak for any and everyone that goes through any bullying and mental health problems. Don’t give up don’t give in cause you are not alone. Don’t lose hope cause somehow someway all of us will be ok eventually.
I know life is hard believe me I do. But everything will be ok cause you are here for a reason I am here for a reason everyone is here for a reason. Believe in seeing the best in others no matter what they have done no matter what they look like or sound like. Cause everyone is unique and everyone deserves a chance to shine and be forgiven and accepted. For who they truly are and for everything they have said or done. In the end those that are bullied, mistreated and misunderstood or not heard. We are the ones that deserve the best in life. I wrote this to take a stand to make a difference cause that’s what I dream of or wish to do. I just want to help others and make a huge difference in the world.
ever since I was in grade 1 I was bullied for the way I learn and the lifestyle now I’m in grade 9 and still fighting against the bully everyday of my life in school and at home I feel like dropping out cause of this I’m sick of it
