October is National Bullying Prevention Month @ October is National Bullying Prevention Month
Oct 24 all-day

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and, according to new BSA data, Generation Z believes bullying is the biggest issue facing their generation and the number one issue they want to solve.

As a Scout parent and/or leader, you know that, given the Scout Law, the BSA’s anti-bullying education, and Scouts’ daily Good Turns, Scouts are among the most prepared to take on bullying prevention. While Scouts pledge to lend a helping hand at all times, their peers may not always know who those Scouts are or that Scouts are important allies in the effort against bullying.

That’s why we are asking all Scouts to wear their Scouting uniform to school on October 16th to make it easy for their classmates to find people they can count on for a kind word; a lunch buddy; or a resource to help them recognize, safely respond to, and report all types of bullying. The goal is that once other students know who the Scouts are, they will feel comfortable reaching out to those individuals whenever they need a friend.

This effort will also serve as a visual reminder within each community that Scouting – with guiding principles like being kind, helpful, and friendly – is an invaluable resource for youth, schools, and society as a whole.

How to Participate:

Ask all Scouts in your family, pack, troop, ship or crew to proudly wear their uniform to school on October 16th and remind them to show the power of kindness by reaching out to classmates to make sure everyone feels welcome.
In October, share inspirational stories that showcase how Scouts or the Scouting program has helped combat bullying. Use the hashtag #AScoutIsKind.
Check out the BSA’s bullying awareness information, and share the uplifting stories from our official social media pages on October 16.
Help curtail cyberbullying by encouraging Scouts who have parental permission to use social media to send supportive and uplifting comments and messages to classmates on October 16th… and every other day.

The free program will be from 9-11 a.m. in the Bain Event Center, located directly behind the Happy State Bank Academic and Research Building, 600 WTAMU Drive. Park in the dirt lot north of the arena.
“Stress decreases an animal’s immune function, making it easier for them to get sick,” said Dee Griffin, D.V.M., VERO program director, Canyon. “Low-stress cattle handling is a critical key to keeping cattle healthy, to decreasing our dependence on antibiotic use and to improving cattle growth performance.”
Ron Gill, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension beef cattle specialist, will conduct the workshop. Gill is a nationally recognized expert in teaching low-stress cattle handling, Griffin said. He is a key instructor in the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s Beef Quality Assurance Cattle Care Training program, giving more than a dozen live cattle handling workshops across the U.S. annually.
“This is an opportunity for all FFA/4-H students and cattle folks: cowboys, feedlot workers, ranchers … everyone in the Texas Panhandle region to attend one of his workshops free of charge,” Griffin said.
