16th Annual Spring Art Contest: ‘How to Handle Bullying’

Bullying is a problem that affects millions of students, and it has everyone worried, not just the kids on its receiving end. Parents, teachers and other adults don’t always see it. So, they may not understand how extreme bullying can get.

Students are more likely to see bullying first-hand, so we’re asking them to start thinking about ways they can show us, in the form of art, how to help prevent bullying and promote acceptance.

Telcom is accepting artwork submissions that reflect “How to Handle Bullying.” All entries must represent a policyholder and be received at the Telcom office by April 3.

Prizes are $100 for first place, $75 for second place and $50 for third place.

Age groups are Under 8, 8-10 and 11-14.

Entries must be received at the Telcom office by April 3.
