Anti-Bullying Campaign Wins Emmy Award

SAMHSA's "15+ Make Time to Listen—Take Time To Talk . . . About Bullying" multimedia campaign is the national winner of the 2004-2005 Community Service Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

Sponsored and produced by WJLA-TV ABC7 and SAMHSA, the campaign includes a prime-time television special, five public service announcements, and print materials, which were created to increase awareness and change behavior around bullying.

Only one national community service Emmy is presented each year to a local television station and its community organization for a campaign that provides an excellent example of outstanding social messages and services to its community.

A winner is chosen from several hundred entries by a blue-ribbon panel of judges including community leaders, clergy, educators, businesspeople, and artists.
