Dear Educator,

Your  school group/team/club can win an exciting New York Mets Experience while “striking out” bullying. As part of the New York Mets partnership with CAPS’ Bullying Prevention Center to “strike out” bullying, CAPS is launching a video contest to actively engage school communities to stop bullying . The contest is open to Long Island  school groups, grades 8 through 12. First prize – Up to 15 students of the winning team and 2 faculty chaperones will be guests of the New York Mets at Citi Field for batting practice, a pre- game ceremony on the field and tickets to the game.

Participating school teams will create a 60 sec PSA/video that promotes positive messaging, e.g. upstander behavior, respect for all, inclusion. Participants must be aged 13 to 18. Each video submission must be submitted with a short outline stating  how you will use this video in your school community to promote a positive school climate.
