826 National is proud to announce a featured writer in the Stop Bullying: Speak Up Writing Challenge, presented in collaboration with Cartoon Network and The FriXion Erasable Pen by Pilot Pen: Tesa, a third-grade student from Georgia!
The Stop Bullying: Speak Up Writing Challenge has its roots in Cartoon Network’s award-winning “Stop Bullying: Speak Up” initiative with 826 National, and is a collaboration between Cartoon Network and Pilot Pen that distributed 500 bookmaking kits to classrooms and educators nationwide this year. The kits integrated beloved Cartoon Network characters and FriXion Clicker Erasable Gel Ink Pens and included lessons developed by 826 National. The lessons, now available to all educators on 826 Digital, are based on the organization’s internationally celebrated approach to teaching writing and are designed to inspire dialogue among students while supporting educators as they raise awareness of bullying.
The bookmaking kits also introduced a writing challenge to students — asking them to detail how kindness and understanding help stop bullying before it starts. Tesa’s story was chosen to be brought to life by animators to raise awareness for the “Stop Bullying: Speak Up” initiative.
