On Thursday, Seon announced the recipients of its anti-bullying grant. After reviewing the applications, the supplier based its selection on a number of criteria, including need, creativity, project detail and project reach.
There are seven recipients of anti-bullying grant money and The Bully Project Educator’s DVD & Toolkits.
