Albemarle Students Compete in Anti-Bullying Video Competition

Posted: Updated:

Albemarle High School students have the chance to win a national competition with an anti-bullying video they created.

The Stop One, Save One group put together a public service announcement called "Be the Hero" and submitted it to the Stop Bullying Video Challenge on stopbullying.gov.  The video is one of seven finalists selected from more than 900 entries on the site.

"You don't have to be some superhero and make a huge deal about it. You can be yourself and something really simple can make a huge difference," said senior Danielle Horridge in reference to the video.

The students brainstormed the storyline and filmed the PSA before school and during their lunch period.

"On Facebook and Twitter we've gotten a lot of unexpected posts, which is really heartwarming to see everyone reaching out and helping us in this movement," said Christine Bor, another AHS senior.  

The grand prize winner gets $2,000. AHS students say they would put that prize money back into bullying-prevention programs. Click here to vote for "Be the Hero." Voting ends next Monday.
