Guildford Park teen's design to be worn by 10,000 students

Bea Venzon is making a habit out of bully prevention.

The Grade 12 Guildford Park Secondary student’s winning artwork was chosen from more than 400 entries to be on the front of this year’s Anti-Bullying Day T-shirts. Bea’s design of two hands clasped together into the shape of a heart over the slogan “see something, say something” will be worn by 10,000 students and others to mark Anti-Bullying Day Feb. 27.Bea2Horiz3WEB.jpg
“My entire family is pumped about wearing these T-shirts,” says Bea.
 
A member of her school’s Gay Straight Alliance, Bea has been recognized repeatedly for her efforts to end bullying. The alliance won first place in the senior category in Surrey’s Anti-Bullying Day film contest last year, and Bea was also part of the team that won the Out in Schools youth public service announcement contest in 2011 .
 
Bea is thrilled that her design is part of an initiative as important as Anti-Bullying Day.
 
“Nobody deserves to get bullied for their race, sexual orientation, financial status, disability, gender, religion, perceived subculture or for anything at all,” says the 17-year-old.
