Since Seon’s 2013 Coloring Contest, “Bullies Aren’t Cool,” received an overwhelming response — over 1,300 submissions from almost 50 school districts — the company has decided to hold the contest annually. This year, the contest will consist of two parts.
For part one, contestants are asked to draw a “No Bullies on My Bus” outline picture on the contest sheet, to be used in part two (contestants will color in the winner’s outline picture). Scan the child’s completed contest sheet and e-mail to [email protected] by Sept. 22. Use the subject line, “Bullies Aren’t Cool.”
The winner’s outline will be used in part two of the contest. The winner will also receive a Seon anti-bullying medal, button, and “Buddy the Seon Safety Bear” stuffed animal.
Part two will begin Oct. 1, in time for National Bullying Prevention Month.
