To be considered for this award, students were asked to write a persuasive essay describing perceptions of cyber bullying and its impact. They were also asked to create a plan for the prevention of cyber bulling. Numerous entries were received and ClassLink recognizes and congratulates all of the nominees on their school achievements. Kelsey Prye impressed ClassLink judges with her essay on the need to raise awareness on the issue of bullying overall. Kelsey included in her essay her own experience helping organize and implement an action plan with her friends to combat cyber bullying at her high school.
