Kids and Teens Talk About Bullying

June 2, 2022

Congratulations to everyone whose videos were selected for the Spring 2022 “Students with Solutions” contest to produce short (one-to-three-minute) videos using template scripts! Producing the videos was a creative opportunity for adults to engage youth in bullying prevention conversation while involving them in developing resources that can help educate their peers.

When Quest Academy was asked, “What impact did creating the video have on those involved?” Their response, “Our students bonded while making this video. They grew in respect for each other’s different gifts and opinions and in confidence for their own. They grew in their ability to collaborate, listen to each other, and compromise with each other.”
