Students with Solutions is a project designed for educators to engage their students around bullying prevention. Through the project, students will watch the video below, followed by classroom discussion, and respond to the content in their own creative way through art, writing, graphics, or videos for the chance to receive awards and recognition!

How it Works

  1. SHARE the “Students with Solutions” video with your students.
  2. FACILITATE a classroom discussion about what it means to be intentional with acts of kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Download the discussion tips.
  3. ENCOURAGE your students to create a drawing, design graphics, take photographs, write poetry, or even film videos responding to the themes discussed. The content can come from real-life examples or ideas about how to be more intentional in your actions.
  4. SUBMIT your images, writing, or videos to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center either by emailing [email protected] or to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, 8161 Normandale Blvd., Bloomington, MN 55437.
