Euwan Kim, a fourth grade student at Fort Lee School No. 1, was named the winner for her grade level in the 2012 “Don’t Stand by for Bullying” contest sponsored by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office.
The contest, which was open to all county students, challenged entrants to “tell us how you won’t just stand by and let bullying happen.”
Elementary school students submitted posters, middle school students sent in PowerPoint presentations and high school students made videos. Schools chose their top entries for each grade level. The final voting was conducted online at the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office website.
"In this, the second year of our contest, we have seen a 25 percent increase in the number of schools participating," said Prosecutor John Molinelli. "We are eager to partner with Bergen County educators in keeping young people focused on eliminating bullying behavior."
Winning students were honored at the Prosecutor’s Office’s recent SNAP conference for educators and law enforcement. The winning entries will be featured on the office’s website on the Youth Outreach page, according to the Prosecutor's Office.
