Prosecutor implements 'Knocking Violence Out of My School' video competition

The Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office is dedicated to working to prevent school threats, violence, weapons, and bullying in Macomb County schools. As part of this effort, Macomb County Prosecutor Peter J. Lucido in conjunction with “A Brighter America” has implemented a student competition called “Knocking Violence Out of My School” so students have a voice to talk peer to peer about how they feel about school threats, violence, weapons, and bullying.

The “Knocking Violence Out of My School” video competition consists of students making videos on anti-threats, anti-violence, anti-weapons, and/or anti-bullying. The video should be no longer than two minutes and will be judged by the six assistant prosecuting attorneys assigned to the Juvenile Unit. The videos can be taken by any social media platform, cell phone, or other equipment. Awards will be given to the top three videos. First prize is $1,000, second prize is $750, and third prize is $500. The student’s school will also receive a Hero Award.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 17, and the winners and their schools will be announced Wednesday, March 1. Submissions can be emailed to the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office Communications Director Dawn Fraylick at For questions, call Fraylick at 586-469-5737. For the rules and content ideas, visit

The Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office looks forward to seeing students’ submissions and stopping school threats, violence, weapons, and bullying, once and for all.
