The Premier proceeds with the national presentation of the Ensemble contre l’intimidation (Together Against Bullying) Awards. The awards ceremony is held annually at the Parliament Building in Québec City.
A trophy symbolizing the theme Ensemble contre l’intimidation (Together Against Bullying) is presented to the person, the organization and the school or school board that have achieved distinction for the nature and quality of their interventions in preventing or to counter bullying.
Made of hammered bronze, three silhouettes are mounted on a warm-coloured wooden base. Their feet are enlaced with two bronze ribbons that symbolize their relationships. The work thus evokes three individuals interacting in the phenomenon of bullying: the target, the perpetrator and the person who can provide assistance, either a witness, an intervener or a close relation. The three silhouettes also occupy the three axes on which the fight against bullying is based: prevention, intervention and support. Since involvement in this fight occurs both in the living environments and in cyberspace, the two ribbons represent these two environments.
