Allstate Sign & Plaque Launches Anti-bullying Sign Contest for Schools Across the Nation

Deer Park, N.Y. - Allstate Sign & Plaque, a signage company based in Deer Park, New York, is asking elementary and middle school students across the nation to design an anti-bullying sign for a chance to win a $2,000 grant for their school.

“Bullying is a big problem in our nation’s schools and through proper signage, we can help deter that,” said Mark Fick, president of Allstate Sign & Plaque. “What better way for students to work together to stop bullying than through art and graphic design.”

Students from grades 2-8 can submit an anti-bullying design on standard 8.5’ x 11’ letter sized paper, with a maximum of 100 characters. The design can be hand drawn or digitally created. Allstate Sign & Plaque asks that the signs be “positive in nature and take a stand against bullying.” Designs will be accepted on the Allstate Sign & Plaque Facebook page through Oct. 1, 2015. The winning design will be announced later that month.

“We’re looking forward to seeing the designs these students come up with. This is a great opportunity to begin discussions on anti-bullying with students,” added Mr. Fick.

The winning school will receive a $2,000 grant and 15 of the winning signs produced free of cost. The second place design and school will win a $250 Allstate Sign & Plaque Credit and 10 of the winning designs produced free. The third best design and school will receive 10 of the winning designs produced free.
