This year’s theme is…

In today’s ever-connected world, where social media often shapes our interactions,  BKO aims to inspire students to reflect on their own social media usage, including what it means to engage in positive online and offline behavior. We know that social media is here to stay, so how can we empower our students to use it to find community and inspire them to take action in real life?
