In partnership with Justin Brands, Cassville Middle School (CMS) has launched a Boot Out Bullying campaign, which will run Aug. 31 to Dec. 4.

Justin Brands has provided an adult-sized pair of Bent Rail boots that will be manufactured at the Cassville plant in conjunction with the campaign, and CMS Student Council members will be selling chances to win the boots Sept. 7 at CMS home volleyball and football games.

The winner will have the opportunity to select the adult boot design of their choice from a select Justin Boots catalog. 

Tickets are $5 for one chance to win; $10 for three chances; or $20 for 10 chances.

All proceeds benefit the CMS counseling program and will be used for anti-bullying education such as speakers, classroom projects and curriculum. 

The drawing will be held during half-time of the eighth-grade girls basketball game at home versus Springfield Catholic on Dec. 4.

The winner does not have to be present to win, and will be contacted by Dec. 5.
