STAND UP, SPEAK OUT AGAINST BULLYING
Area Great Clips salons are working with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, public and private schools and local CBS Radio affiliates on an anti-bullying campaign called “Stand Up, Speak Out.”
The program encourages victims, their friends or witnesses of bullying to voice their concerns and be heard. Students, parents and teachers of local schools are asked to fill out and sign a pledge form to end bullying.
The program is being promoted in Mecklenburg and 11 surrounding counties and both public and private schools are invited to participate. Pledge forms can be found at all of the 65 local Great Clips salons in the region, or on CBS Charlotte Radio’s website. The program runs from Oct. 1 through Dec. 31, 2012.
Every student pledge submitted will be entered in a CBS Radio contest: The elementary, middle, and high schools with the highest percentage of student pledges will each win a pep rally at their schools.
