NOT in my school! Stop violence, say NO to bullying!


ELTA invites primary and secondary school students to join the project against violence and promote anti-bullying policies in schools.


Every day we can find at least one newspaper article, Facebook post or a TV report on bullying at schools. Headlines are frightening as well as the everyday life of children who silently suffer at schools. When will it stop? What can we do to stop and prevent violence at schools?
Students are invited to make a short video (up to 2 minutes), ppt (up to 20 slides) or a poster sending a message to their peers to stop violence and say NO to bullying at schools.
A three-member ELTA committee will choose 10 best projects which will be posted on ELTA website for voting. The three projects with most votes will be awarded main prizes and the others will get consolation prizes. All the participants, both teachers and students will get an electronic certificate for joining the project.
The project is sponsored by The English Book and Data Status.


Submission deadline: March 31, 2017
Project selection: April 1 – April 10, 2017
Voting: April 10 – April 20, 2017
Winners announcement: last week of April
