Give Respect – Get Respect Movement Kick-Off

Give Respect – Get Respect Movement Kick-Off

In conjunction with National Bullying Awareness week, the Halton Regional Police Service in partnership with the Halton District School Board, Halton Catholic District School Board, Independent Schools in Halton and the Halton Region Health Department kicked off the fourth year of the Give Respect ~ Get Respect Bullying Awareness and Education Movement.

Halton students in grades six to twelve are challenged to develop creative arts-based public service messages that communicate the theme, ‘Give Respect, Get Respect’, promoting healthy relationships and inclusion to prevent bullying.

The movement has grown from 60 students in 2010 to over 3,000 students in 2013. Several students at the awards gala at the end of April this year indicated that they had already started to work on their 2013/2014 submissions.

Additional categories have been introduced this year to include, Posters, Videos and Original Composition/Song. The rules for this year’s competition as well as showcase submissions from the past few years can be found in the Youth Section of the Halton Regional Police Service website hrps.on.ca. Halton students crowded auditoriums this week to celebrate the kick-off of National Bullying Week and the start of the Give Respect – Get Respect Bullying Awareness and Education Movement in Halton.

Students have until March 6, 2014 to complete and forward their submissions to their respective Board’s Safe Schools Teams.  A gala to celebrate this year’s participation is slated to be held on May 1, 2014.
