NSHSS & The Creative Coalition
Work Together to Fight Bullyiing
There’s a natural connection between the 700,000 high school students, college undergraduates and young working professional members of NSHSS and the mission of the Creative Coalition and the World Wrestling Enterprise’s anti-bullying campaign, “be a STAR”. “be a STAR” stands for ‘Show Tolerance And Respect’ and is to ensure a positive and equitable social environment for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation through grassroots efforts beginning with education and awareness.
New bullying statistics released in 2010 are showing that bullying is still a problem among children and teens, but is taking on a different approach with cyberbullying becoming more and more rampant in school and after school among teens and children. Social networking has provided an entirely new environment for bullying to take place. According to bullying statistics 2010, there are about 2.7 million students being bullied each year by about 2.1 students taking on the roll of the bully.
NSHSS is working closely with The Creative Coalition, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and 43 other alliance members to aggressively prevent and stop bullying. Through the “be a STAR” campaign and throughout 2012, NSHSS will be promoting positive methods of social interaction and encourage people to treat others as equals and with respect because everyone is a star in their own right.
Through the be a STAR Alliance, NSHSS is a partner with the following organizations:
