Never be a bystander - that is the message. It may seem simple, but when we read our media headlines, especially in Florida, about youths that are killing themselves, we need to realize that more needs to be done.
What is the answer to cyberbullying?
Communication? Education? Kindness?
Today an educational and informative documentary was released online for everyone to watch. Submit The Documentary is a film that you must watch and pass on to your friends and family. (Video is on the sidebar).
St. Johns County is privileged to have Cyberbullying Prevention Expert, Dr. Sameer Hinduja, who is featured in the film, as one of the keynote speakers for the Community Empowerment Day of 2014.

Within the Next Week Submit the Documentary team are creating social sharing contests dedicated to building communities and continuing grassroots efforts.
- The first set of contests will be a point system. Example: How many people can you get to view the film on your website (We are able to track this through our embedded codes). Number of views will equal points towards a title and rank. We will begin keeping track on October 24.
- Another set of contests will be devoted to children/students. Example: Essay contest to win a host a screening package. We will include some t-shirts, Dvds of the film, and USB drives of the educational guide.
