Paige Wisehaupt, a Stand for State Ambassador, encourages students to put a green dot on the map by popping paint-filled balloons with darts. Green dots represent actions people can take to prevent an act of harm from happening. An example of a green dot is finding someone who can step in when you can’t.
From January 23rd to 27th, Stand for State will be distributing KIND bars across Penn State campuses to celebrate our first birthday!
