Just say, “NO BULL!”
The Great American NO BULL Challenge™
And Teen Video Awards
Promoting social media responsibility & social action Using the power of music and filmmaking
The Great American NO BULL Challenge is a social action organization that uses the power of social media, music and the magic of filmmaking to inspire 25 million middle and high school students to create films that speak to the importance of digital responsibility.
Our goal is to use these socially driven documentary-style films and PSA’s as a means to bring about social change on a global basis.
The annual NO BULL Teen Video Awards celebrates the culmination of the NO BULL Challenge’s 4+ month national video contest, where thousands of teens from around the country are celebrated for participating. The ultimate goal? To inspire change at the youth level and build a positive school climate.
Prizes include the coveted Stand UP Award, scholarships, laptops, video cameras and a trip to Sundance Film Festival.
At NO BULL’s Teen Video Awards, celebrities, music lovers, top teen filmmakers, educators, youth and industry leaders gather to celebrate America’s teens for standing up and making a difference. They’re inspiring other teens to change the world for the better, one film at a time.
NO BULL is committed to creating and inspiring youth-led films as a platform for dialogue on the most important issues of our time.
