Two area students will receive brand new iPads after participating in the Stop the Bullying Campaign, supported by Dr. Jennifer Olson and the radio stations of DoorCountyDailyNews.com.
We are proud to announce Luxemburg-Casco High School junior Alyssa Klein and TJ Walker Middle School sixth grade student Alexis McAllister as the winners of the contest. More than 220 students from Door and Kewaunee Counties submitted a 60-word stop the bullying message in order to help stop the spread of bullying in their schools.
Stupid, fat, ugly, weird – those harsh words affect us all. No person, no matter the age, size or race deserves to hear those words. Bullying is unnecessary, but change is possible. If we all put forth the effort, each and every one of us can be the difference between a bullied child and a productive member of society. Be that difference! I’m Alyssa Klein, a junior from Luxemburg-Casco High School, and I’m choosing to be that difference.
Listen to Alyssa's message.
Bullying. If every day you were pushed around and put down would that give you the confidence to keep coming to school? Would you be excited to sit alone at the lunch table or be whispered about? Some victims of bullying wouldn’t. They’d fall into the shadows of school, become invisible. Be a friend, help someone out. Why bully? This has been Alexis McAllister, a 6th grader from TJ Walker Middle School.
Listen to Alexis' message.
