Algona Named Bullying Prevention Video Contest Winner

Algona, IA (KICD)–Algona High School took top prize in this year’s video contest in conjunction with the second Governor’s Bullying Prevention Summit.

Algona Senior Beth Benschoter – who produced the video – tells KICD News that while most seemed to focus on the negative aspects of bullying, they took a different route.

Benschoter says last Fall the Algona Leadership class started a project which was highlighted in their video.

The community has rallied around the effort and the movement is spreading.

Algona High School will receive a $500 check for bullying prevention efforts and visit by Governor Branstad and Lt. Governor Reynolds for an all-school assembly.

There were a total of 30 videos submitted for the contest which can all be viewed at https://educateiowa.eduvision.tv/default.aspx under the “Bully Prevention Entries” channel.
