Mary Jane Lancer and Elaina Schlesinger were the Button Contest winners in 2018.

For fifteen years, No Name-Calling Week has been organizing K-12 educators and students to choose #KindnessInAction and reject name-calling and bullying in schools.

Leading up to celebratory activities designed to actively insert kindness into everyday actions, students at Warwick Valley Middle School are challenged to enter a No Name-Calling Week Button Contest.

How to participate in the Button Contest:

  • Find the template sheet placed outside the main office for complete contest rules.
  • Go to the Guidance Office to pick up a button template.
  • Using the template, create a piece of original artwork that represents “Kindness in Action” – the central theme of No Name-Calling Week.
  • Submit your entry no-later-than Friday, Jan. 18.

Two winners will be selected and their designs will printed as buttons. Buttons can be earned by turning in ROAR tickets. Questions? Stop by Guidance.

Founded in 2004 with Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, and evaluated GLSEN research, No Name-Calling Week was inspired by James Howe’s novel, “The Misfits,” about students who, after experiencing name-calling, run for student council on a No Name-Calling platform.
