Why did Lyanne Melendez and the ABC KGO 7 Camera crews come to visit Parkway Heights Middle School last Friday, March 9th? "The Great American No Bull Challenge" is why.
Parkway Leadership students submitted five videos to the only national video contest and teen video awards show that brings awareness to the issue of cyberbullying in America. Shawn Edgington, the campaign's founder, took notice of the videos and came to visit Parkway on March 9, along with the ABC camera crews.
She spoke to our students about the importance of this student-based contest. This was a great opportunity to promote the contest that has a variety of prizes and could possibly land the winning film producers a trip to the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
The Challenge wants to involve the students, educators, communities together to make a change at the student level. It was exciting for the students to share their message and to be on the local news. If you would like to see the interview .
This was a positive experience for the students, and they are really looking forward to the results of the video contest. The Parkway videos that were submitted can be voted on beginning April 1, 2012 at www.nobullchallenge.org.
