Pink Shirt Day originated in Canada when a high school freshman was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. The next day, students created a ‘Sea of Pink’ by wearing pink shirts to send a message to unite against bullying.

Each year, our Turning Bullies into Buddies program shares literature-based activities to teach social emotional skills. This year’s theme is “Many Cultures, One Community.” The literature-based activities are designed to increase youth’s ability to accept and respect differences. It is our goal to reduce culturally or diversity-motivated bullying among children. Free activity plans and books are available at this year’s Pink Shirt Day Networking and Training Kick-off event. Please register to attend at: primetimepbc.org. And click here for the 2018 Elementary School Age Reading List: 2018 Reading List.

Congratulations to Michaela McCoy, a student at Royal Palm Beach High School for designing a winning illustration for the front of this year’s official Palm Beach County Pink Shirt Day T-shirt.
