Florida is not a stranger to tragedies related to bullying incidents and suicides among tweens and teens.
The NO BULL Challenge is the largest, youth-led national campaign in America’s history to combat cyberbullying.
Murray Middle School in St. Augustine is home to Girls Circle! Girls Circle is a support group for middle school girls. It is designed to foster self-esteem, help girls maintain authentic connections with peers and adult women, counter trends toward self-doubt, and allow for genuine self-expression through verbal sharing and creative activity.
Girls Circle are diligently preparing to be part of the NO BULL Challenge. This campaign is open to all middle and high school students. (Watch the video ).
Fifteen finalists will be invited to attend the star-studded NO BULL Teen Video Awards in San Francisco. Our community is behind our students and just making the effort to show your support to put an end to bullying and cyberbullying is a step in a positive direction.
