Title
"See It-Report It-Stop it" Anti-Bullying Video Contest

Discussion
In October, to correspond with Anti-Bullying month, Brevard Public Schools partnered with the Brevard County Crime Prevention Task Force to present the 1st Annual "See It-Report It-Stop It" Anti Bullying Video Contest.  The contest was promoted throughout the District to secondary school principals challenging student teams to develop creative and innovative videos promoting strategies to reduce bullying in our schools.  Nine (9) student teams responded to the challenge, representing the following schools:  Edgewood Jr./Sr. High School, Heritage High School, Hoover Middle School, Jackson Middle School, Kennedy Middle School, McNair Magnet School, Southwest Middle School, Space Coast Jr./Sr. High School, and BCSO PAL.  Each video was reviewed by a team of judges from Brevard Public Schools and the Crime Prevention Task Force, and was judged on content, messaging creativity and production quality.  Prizes will be awarded for the top 3 videos.

Recommendation

Show 1st place winning video followed by a presentation by Brevard County Sherriff's Office of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.
