18 PROJECT HIGHLIGHT SAY NO TO BULLYING POSTER COMPE TITION In 2018, we ran our annual Say No To Bullying Poster Competition for primary school students for the 5th year. With over 48,000 students across Australia registering to take part, the competition once again provided an opportunity to put bullying in the spotlight. Students were given a chance to express their voice through art and educators were given the chance to identify bullying behaviours that came to the surface as a result of the competition. Twentieth Century Fox partnered with Interrelate this year, for the theme Bulllieve in Yourself, in conjunction with the release of their children’s animation ‘Ferdinand’. 11 year old Trinity Sheridan from Alstonville won 1 st place in the competition and attended a prestigious awards ceremony at NSW Government House in May. The Awards Ceremony provided a platform for us to encourage the students to: • stand up for what they believe in • not let others determine their value • see how a positive view of others can help others see their own capabilities His Excellency NSW Governor David Hurley and his wife Mrs Hurley supported the competition as Interrelate’s patron. The competition garnered widespread media exposure for Interrelate, with 61 news articles published and a significant increase to our social media followers.
