Registration is open for the sixth annual Birdies Against Bullying golf tournament. The event will take place at Sand Creek Station Golf Course on June 13, 2019. The tournament raises funds for the anti-bullying efforts and Newton Public Schools.

Birdies Against Bullying gives financial support for the district’s efforts to combat bullying. The USD 373 Anti-Bullying Committee brought in a number of guest speakers, most recently nationally recognized youth speaker Josh Drean. This year, they’ve also hosted a “Newton Be Nice” event, published information on identifying and dealing with bullying and purchased books for social workers for social skill groups.

“The Newton Anti-Bullying Task Force greatly appreciates the generous donations from the patrons of our community,” said Megan Nagel, task force member. “These funds help to provide educational experiences for students and resources for educators. We continue to thrive to create a community of connected learners and this would not be possible without the support of this tournament.”

It is $100 per player to play in the tournament. This includes lunch, snacks, refreshments and one round of golf at Sand Creek. New to this year, the first golfer to get a hole-in-one on  No. 7 will win a trip to Hawaii.

The Rotary Club of Newton and USD 373 worked together on the tournament. To register, contact Gary Hill at
