The state is launching it’s annual contest for Illinois students to help prevent cyber bullying. State Board of Education spokesperson Mary Fergus says the idea is to hear what kids think is the best way to stop online bullying.

She says the theme this year is "bystander intervention."

Fergus comments

Students can enter a poster, video, podcast, or slideshow into the contest that incorporates this year’s theme. Entries must be postmarked by March 30th. For more information, click on the link at this story at
