All kids should feel safe at school and in their communities. SafeOregon gives kids, parents, schools, and their communities a way to report safety threats or potential acts of violence. Together, we'll empower people to speak out and spark change.
PACE shared its top six "Students Taking on Predators" student-made videos. Oregon high school students were encouraged to create videos on the topic of identifying, reporting, and eliminating sexual harassment in schools.
"Our goal was to generate awareness about the issue and create learning tools for schools to stop boundary invasion of students," said Dave Harvey, PACE Administrator. "These videos are especially powerful because they represent students' perspectives."
The videos also contain a link to the statewide Safe Oregon tipline, which allows for anonymous tips to law enforcement. Each winning video is awarded a $5,000 college scholarship. Winners were chosen based on quality of information on preventing boundary invasion and harassment of students. Students were encouraged to keep the videos short and focus on production quality and emotional appeal. Watch each of the winning videos below.
