Deadline: Competition closed for 2016

Come on, teachers, encourage your students to participate!  Whether you assign as a class project, take advantage of this opportunity to open discussion about diversity and bias, or identify as a fun exercise to encourage your students to express themselves, the outcomes will be positive!  And winners don’t go home empty handed.  Prizes – gift cards, certificates and goodie bags — will be given to the first, second and third place winners in each age category.  Winners will be chosen by a panel made up of representatives from Kidsbridge and retired educators.


The Theme for 2016 was: “STAND UP for Diversity … How I Include and Respect Others.” The winners were formally recognized at our Fifth Annual Walk2Stop Bullying.
