Class 5B at Bakkeskolen in Kolding, Danhostel Won the Competition against Bullying
Yesterday, Danhostel's Director, Ole Andersen, surprised class 5B at Bakkeskolen in Kolding with a huge gift - a camp school stay worth 20,000 DKK at Danhostel. The students can now look forward to spending 3 days at a Danhostel.
Forty schools participated in the competition and submitted 70 different ideas on how to solve the problem of bullying in schools. The competition was sent to all schools in Denmark in February and the assigned task was to find at least three good ideas to deal with bullying in school.
Good Idea – Great Result
Class 5B won the competition because their idea benefits not only their class, but classes across the country. They created QR codes which give them ideas on which games would be fun for all their classmates. In that way no one would be left out and the relationship among all in the class would be strengthened.
"It's simple, contemporary and a way to show sympathy," said Helle Rabøl Hansen, who helped to choose the winner of the competition.

1st prize: A school camp stay at Danhostel worth DKK 20,000. Winner: Class 5B, Bakkeskolen in Kolding

Danhostel sends a big “Thank You” to ALL the schools, classes and students who participated in the competition. We hope our initiative has been instructive and will focus on fighting bullying at tall schools in Denmark.
In the spring of 2019, the Danhostel brand published a manifesto and new strategy to implement the 17 UN Sustainable Goals over the coming years. Several Danhostels have already embraced many of the initiatives. Danhostel Ebeltoft has already implemented 4 of the 17 World Goals.
