Blue Whale Challenge information

Parent/Guardian Alert - "Blue Whale Challenge"
Please take a moment and look over the following alert MSAD#11 recently received from the Maine Department of Education regarding a concerning smart phone app known as "Blue Whale Challenge".

The Maine Department of Education has learned that there are a number of rumors circulating about a smart phone app called the Blue Whale Challenge. Stories indicate that the app is a social media challenge targeting 10-14 year olds. Rumors suggest that this app encourages at-risk, vulnerable teens to perform specific, and sometimes harmful tasks, assigned by an anonymous group administrator. Escalating over the course of a 50 day period, the tasks lure participants into sharing personal information, and as the game progresses that information is then used against the” players” in the form of threats if they choose to stop playing. On the last day of the challenge, the only way to win is to die by suicide.

It is the Department’s intent to make you aware of the rumor and to share the most current information related to this issue. We are aware of instances across the country where administrators and other sources have been sharing information on this issue, and we do know that some students in Maine are aware of the app.

Here is a recently published article about the Blue Whale Challenge, from, that may provide some more helpful context around the app and specific rumors associated with it: Please take note of the last two paragraphs which contain information that supports the importance of awareness and prevention strategies.
