Teen Cyberbullying Video Makes It to Times Square
Earlier this year, we ran a video contest called “What’s Your Story?” with the goal of engaging and educating young people on various topics related to their Internet safety. One of the winning videos called “Pull the Plug on Bullying” is now showing through the month of November on the CBS Superscreen in New York City’s Times Square.
This video was created by 18-year old Matt Bendo and 17-year old KJ Proulx from Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.
While we have deliberately put effort into drawing attention to the video and more importantly to the message it sends, I think the real appeal is that it was created by two teens. In 36 seconds, Matt and KJ portray the impact of cyberbullying and more importantly the need for young people to take action if they see it or are a victim of it.
