BYOU Magazine’s Message on Anti-Bullying

Teen actress Kat McNamara, who writes BYOU Magazine‘s empowering column Kat’s Korner, stars in the upcoming anti-bullying movie Contest that makes its world television premiere Sunday, October 6, at 6 pm (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network, in recognition of National Bullying Prevention Month this October and Cartoon Network’s commitment to bullying prevention through its Stop Bullying: Speak Up initiative. You’ll recognize Kat from Disney Channel’s Original Movie Girl Vs. Monster, where she co-stars with Olivia Holt, playing this month on the Disney Channel.

Kat is a passionate anti-bullying advocate, so it seems ideal for her to star in a film that brings awareness to this topic. Contest, which also stars Kenton Duty (Shake It Up!) and Daniel Flaherty (The Americans) is a story about a bully who learns to appreciate and understand others not like himself, and a victim who accepts that true friendship can result from unlikely circumstances. Kat, a very gifted singer, also wrote and sang a song about bullying for the movie soundtrack! Check out the video to her song Chatter on our blog and learn more about her movie by clicking HERE
