Last spring, a pair of Waubun sixth graders made headlines for winning an online competition with their anti-bullying video.

This fall, Waubun is tackling the issue of bullying on a schoolwide basis, as students in each grade, 5-12, took part in an in-depth discussion of the issue on Wednesday, Nov. 28. Some teachers showed an anti-bullying video to spur the discussion.


Afterwards, many of the participants chose to sign a pledge to "Stand Up to Bullies."
