Arizona Department of Health Services holding a ‘Must Stop Bullying’ comic contest

Contributed Article

GRAHAM COUNTY – The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) is holding a “Must Stop Bullying” comic contest. 

Bullying is repeated, unwanted, or hurtful behavior by a person or a group. Bullies use their power to cause physical, psychological, social, or other kinds of harm on a target, even though they’ve been told to stop. We know that bullying happens a lot. We want you to tell us why it is important that it stops and how you have the power to help stop it.

The ADHS invites you to design a comic to prevent bullying and create a kinder community.

The comic can be drawn, designed on the computer or anything you want – as long as it is original and follows the contest guidelines. Six winning submissions will win gift cards. Winning concepts will also be featured in the Arizona Department of Health’s Must Stop Bullying campaign.
