year's theme is “Be the HERO;
STOP the Bullying!” which focuses on
everyday heroes, their roles in our lives and how each one
of us need to step up and "Be the HERO" when the
opportunities arise both in school and in life.

We are inviting schools and communities across Kentucky to take the online pledge from Paducah to Pikeville. Join the campaign, take the pledge and make your community aware of your district's devotion to a proactive approach to a safer school environment.
While bullying doesn’t cause suicide, a stressful environment and persistent, emotional victimization can increase a person’s risk of suicide. Together, we can create awareness about the dangers of bullying and give emotional support to those who may be contemplating suicide. If you or someone you know is in an emotional distress or suicidal crisis, please call the Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
