GLSEN Announces No Name-Calling Week Creative Expression Contest Winners

NEW YORK, May 11, 2010 – GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, is proud to announce the winners of the 2010 No Name-Calling Week Creative Expression Contest from over 700 entries received from across the country.

The Creative Expression Contest is designed for students ages 5-15 to illustrate how name-calling has affected them and their peers through artistic expression in the form of poetry, artwork, music, video or whatever medium they prefer. The contest coincides with No Name-Calling Week, Jan. 25-29, an annual week of educational activities in elementary and middle schools aimed at ending name-calling of all kinds.

First place winners:

•    Primary (ages 5-10) – Grace Andre, Richlin Hines, Deon Lloyd, Taylor Oliver, Tanna Jay Whitmore, and Neander Devil from PS/MS 147Q in Cambria Heights, New York.

Their winning entry was an original song entitled, “I Like My Name.”

•    Secondary (ages 11-15) – Cassiel McEvoy from Tenafly Middle School in Tenafly, NJ for his magazine, “Tween Teen Magazine: The Bullying Issue.”

"We continue to be impressed every year with the creativity and passion students show in their desire to create school environments where difference is valued and all students are treated with respect," said GLSEN Executive Director Eliza Byard. "Congratulations not just to the winners, but to all students who showed us how deeply they care about each other. It’s wonderful to see how this enthusiasm and creativity translates into thoughtful submissions.”

No Name-Calling Week is endorsed by 52 youth-oriented organizations, including the National Association of Elementary School Principals, the National Association of Secondary School Principals and the Girl Scouts of the USA.
