Devils Lake Students Aiming to Take a Bite Out of Bullying

Devils Lake Middle School students are doing what they can to teach elementary kids how to prevent bullying and stay safe.

Bullying has become a big issue for young people and their parents. So big that North Dakota state lawmakers took it up during their recent session.

Now, some Devils Lake Middle School students are doing what they can to teach elementary kids how to prevent bullying and stay safe.

Four sixth grade girls from Central Middle School have been making their way to area schools in hopes of combating bullying.

A presentation by a student at Central Middle School had others contemplating ways to stop bullying.

Now, four girls are working to make sure something that happened to their friend won't happen to others.

They call their presentation "the power of one."

The girls split into teams of two. One talks about bullying in general, what it is and how someone can help.

The other focuses on cyber-bullying and protection from online predators.

The girls hope to continue the presentations into next year.

The girls went to schools in Devils Lake, Four Winds and Warwick.

Altogether they taught 16 classes.
