Children and young people in Lisburn are being encouraged to use their creativity and take part in this year’s anti-bullying art and creative writing competition.
The creative competition is one of the many exciting initiatives taking place in the lead up to Anti-Bullying Week 2014 (17-21 November 2014).
This year’s theme is ‘Together we will make a difference – End Bullying Now!’ and will explore our collective role in tackling bullying in our schools and in our communities.
Anti-Bullying Week, which is celebrating its tenth year, is co-ordinated by the Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum (NIABF) and supported by Translink. NIABF is an interagency group hosted by the National Children’s Bureau (NCB) NI and funded by the Department of Education.
All entries will be judged in three groups, based on age: Junior (under 9 years old), Intermediate (9-13 years old) and Senior (14-18 years old). Entries must be submitted through a school, youth group or other organisation that has registered for Anti-Bullying Week 2014. Schools, youth groups and any organisation working with young people can register for Anti-Bullying Week at www.endbullying.org.uk.
