2. Poster Contest: Friends Do Make a Difference campaign. The intent
of the campaign is to raise awareness around bullying issues. We encourage you to create a poster that incorporates your experience and understanding of bullying and anti-bullying. We firmly believe in the healing power of art. It helps us tell our stories, express our pain, and share our hopes.
Your poster can reflect any of these perspectives. When you submit your artwork, please write a brief statement about what your poster means to you.
