The Human Relations Commission produced a bullying prevention video contest in 2013 for local elementary, middle and high school students. The award winning videos were produced in response to this prompt: Everyone plays a role in bullying: The bully, the bullied and the bystander or… The person who makes a difference! What’s your take?
