Mrs. Laura Penrod’s Freshman Studies classes came in second for the district-wide bullying campaign contest. Students worked in groups of four to five to create their own bullying campaign by designing a video, t-shirt, or a poster to communicate their campaign idea.

“I think its incredible. It’s amazing to see how creative our school was and I love the fact it was for a good cause too,” freshman Sophia Zaman.

The radio station, 98.5 KLUC, partnered with Flip The Script to hold this contest. The winner of the competition received a free concert that would be held at their school. Del Sol High School won first place.

“I’m kind of disappointed, especially because we worked on it for a long time,” freshman Mayra Valdez said.

This contest was open to all schools in Las Vegas.

“I’m very proud of how hard the Professional Academy freshmen worked on their Anti-Bullying Campaigns for the Flip The Script Challenge. It is a great accomplishment that they were able to secure a 2nd place win out of all the schools that submitted for the challenge. To me it’s a 1st place win considering how many schools competed,” said Freshman Studies teacher Mrs. Laura Penrod
