Nick News Covers Girl Scout's Anti-Bullying Vigil

Michigan's Battle Creek Enquirer reports that best friends Maddie Rayner and Alena Buczynski organized an anti-bullying week at their school last month as a way to earn their Girl Scout Silver Awards. The week focused on Massachusetts bullying victim Phoebe Prince, who killed herself after weeks of being targeted at her school. Rayner and Buczynski spent more than 50 hours planning school announcements and events, which culminated in a candlelight vigil for Prince on April 22. The project not only caught the attention of local politicians and People Magazine - Nick News sent a video crew out to film the vigil and gather a story on Rayner and Buczynski.

Awesome job young ladies! Definitely read the entire story here, and let us know your thoughts. How do you feel about bullying in schools?
