Brewers Return "Strike Out Bullying" Student Video Contest

The Milwaukee Brewers announced the return of the Strike Out Bullying contest. This year, students from across the Milwaukee area will be asked to create a video with a positive message to “Strike Out Bullying.” The winning entry will receive a grand prize which includes a visit from Brewers players as well as tickets to a game for their school.
 
Students from all public and private schools in Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Washington and Waukesha Counties are encouraged to create a video that demonstrates a positive message that will help end bullying. 
 
Teachers must submit a link to the students’ submission/video on a publicly accessible online platform such as YouTube, Instagram or Vimeo at brewers.com/strikeoutbullying. The winning video will be selected by a panel of judges assembled by the Brewers and will be assessed on the message, creativity and originality.
 
On Wednesday, May 10, the winning participant’s school will host a visit from Brewers players and other personnel and will receive Brewers apparel along with tickets for a future game at Miller Park. In addition, the student with the winning video will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Brewers game on Friday, May 12. If the video was created by more than one student, a name from the group will be drawn.
 
The contest will open on Monday, January 23 and extends until the end of the day on Friday, April 21, 2017 at 11:59 PM. The creator(s) of the winning video will be notified prior to May 10.
