BELTON, Mo. — Safe Fleet has launched its fourth annual United Against Bullying (UAB) Coloring Contest.
School-age children can submit entries until midnight on Oct. 31 to win prizes and money to help their schools start and sustain programs to spread kindness. Additionally, a poster contest has been included this year for older students.
“Statistics continue to report that bullying incidents peak in middle schools,” said Bob Parks, Safe Fleet’s vice president of human resources and UAB executive sponsor. “We’ve added the UAB poster contest this year to inspire middle and high school students to start conversations about kindness and bullying and to express their feelings through art.”
The UAB program is a social campaign of Safe Fleet, a provider of safety solutions for fleet vehicles. Safe Fleet’s divisions across North America support the program by sharing the contests within their communities.
This year’s theme for the contests is “I Heart Kindness,” because kindness increases happiness, which increases well-being, empathy, and self-esteem, according to the company.
All students in the U.S. and Canada are eligible to participate. There are prizes for the winners, runners-up, and the winners’ schools to help support their kindness or anti-bullying initiatives.
