USA Network’s award-winning public service campaign, Characters Unite, and R&R Partners Foundation’s Flip the Script announced the launch of “Unite Against Bullying Commercial Challenge,” a new contest for middle and high school students to submit their own original ideas for a television ad to help stop bullying.
The winning concept will be developed into a commercial that will air nationwide on USA Network during Characters Unite Month in February and online at CharactersUnite.com and FliptheScriptNow.org.
The challenge was announced by recording artist Carly Rae Jepsen at the “#UniteLIVE: The Concert to Rock Out Bullying,” held last week at University of Nevada.
Jepsen said, “As a longtime advocate for bullying prevention, I am excited to see the original and powerful ads kids across the country will create to help stop bullying. I am hopeful that empowering students to stop intolerance and bullying will help create a brighter future.”
The “Unite Against Bullying Commercial Challenge” runs through November 20, and students ages 13-18 can enter the by submitting a short written essay or a video. The winner will receive an iPad and a trip to Los Angeles to see the commercial filmed. Two runners-up will also receive iPads as tools to continue to develop their creative talents and community leadership.
