    This writing challenge is designed to help you talk about bullies with adults who care about you.  The adults promise to (1) listen first; (2) ask you questions; and (3) work with you to develop strategies to go high in the face of bullies.  You can write an essay in response to any one of the questions below.  (Click here to read the entire challenge prompt.)  Remember that bullying takes place when someone uses words, actions, and looks to make others feel bad about themselves.

    Option 1:      Have you ever used your gifts, talents, and abilities to bully others?

    Option 2:    Have you ever watched someone bully another person?

    Option 3:      Has someone ever used words, actions, or looks to make you feel bad about yourself?
