K – 6 Bullying Prevention Poster Contest

Entry Deadline: extended to Monday, October 28, 2019

October is National Bullying Prevention Month.  Minnesota Association for Children’s Mental Health is pleased to announce the very first Safe Guard – Allies Against Bullying Poster Contest!

Contest is open to artists in Kindergarten through 6th grade who live in Minnesota.

Winning posters will be featured on our website and social media during October for Bullying Prevention Month.  Artists will receive a $20 gift card.

Freeze Out, the Queen of Ice-olation, is causing trouble. She chooses a kid to bully and then uses her Cold Shoulder Crystal to turn all of the their friends and classmates against them.  Soon no one will play with them or talk to them. Then she can tease the kid as much as she wants because she knows no one will do anything to stop her. The kid feels helpless and alone. That’s where we need YOUR help!

Create a poster on 8.5” x 11” paper (or the digital equivalent) that shows the Safe Guard helping someone being bullied by Freeze Out.  You can start with a blank piece of paper or use our template.

Your poster must:
1. Feature at least one hero from the Safe Guard (see character profiles here)
2. Show a non-violent solution to stop Freeze Out.
3. Have a written message that combats bullying.
4. Be drawn, painted, or digitally created entirely by YOU!

Scan or photograph your poster, and then complete the Safe Guard Art Contest Entry Form and upload your artwork.

Or download a printable entry form and email it along with a digital version of the artwork to:

Entries can also be mailed to:
