|"Dance in This Dream" Music Video||Tips & Facts||Sara Stevens|
In light of Bullying Prevention Month coming up, 13 year-old pop-opera singer, Sara Stevens was a victim of bullying and could serve as a remarkable role model for her peers. Unfortunately, Sara knows all too well the tortures of being bullied for being “different”. Instead of being defeated by the teasing and harsh words, she found solace and a new found confidence, through singing. While she is only 13, some of Sara’s accomplishments include performing in La Boheme with the Atlanta Opera; singing the National anthem at the New York Giants vs. New England Patriots game; and gracing the legendary stage at Carnegie Hall. She's now working on her album with famed producer Paul Schwartz of Phantom Of the Opera on Broadway. Please check out Sara's EPK at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rkdh6p5NKkQ&feature=youtu.be to see all the new and exciting projects she is working on. Additionally, she wrote a song about her experiences called “Dance In This Dream” to use her voice to stand up to bullying and show the world how music has helped her overcome her struggles.

|Cyberbullying: A Resource for School Social Workers||Tips & Facts||Kaitlin Louie & Aaron Tooley||2014|
As part of an interview series we conducted with cyberbullying experts (both university professors and licensed clinical social workers), we decided to create an online resource on cyberbullying for school social workers. This resource contains an overview of cyberbullying and explains why it is so harmful to children and adolescents. It is also provides information on cyberbullying education, prevention and intervention. We also included a section for parents and school administrators. As a new father who is also expecting a little girl in September, I wanted to start doing some research on technology usage among children and figured this would be a great series for my website as well.

|White-Out to Erase Bullying||Tips & Facts||Becki Cohn-Vargas||2013|
Students at Watchung Hills Regional High School in New Jersey were fascinated when they heard about an Orange Out Against Bullying in Marshalltown, Iowa. When they got together, they decided to create their own "White-Out to Erase Bullying" event. The campaign took on the flavor of their community. Even the weather cooperated, blanketing the town with snow as high school leaders tied white ribbons on snow-laden trees and students led activities pledging not to be silent in the face of bullying at their high schools, middle schools and elementary schools. Even the mayor and city council members joined the effort. Closed captioning available for this film. To turn on closed captioning, hit play and go to the bottom right-hand corner and click "CC."

|"Engage in Change" Anti-bullying Music Video||Tips & Facts||Chad Mills||2014|
I submitted this previously. Because it was considered "Commercial", it was not accepted. I'm just not certain why. I'm not making money off this video. It was written as a positive message and call to action for all of us to stand up to bullying. Any monies generated from iTunes sale of the audio track are being given to an anti-bullying organization. I think it's a good product that could inspire a lot of people, that's all I wanted out of it.
