HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Some local kids are working to banish bullying for good.  Students from several Huntsville City Schools gathered at Huntsville High's Freshman Academy for the fourth annual 'No Place For Hate' celebration on April 14.

The goal of 'No Place For Hate' is to end bullying in schools.   Students from various schools participated in a parade of banners to show their support for the program's purpose. They also talked about achievements they've seen in each of their schools.

"I think it's been a huge success so far. We brought in our high schools first and then middle school and then elementary. I don't see us ever not doing it," said Donna Clark, Counseling Services Coordinator.

Clark says Huntsville City Schools is planning a conference this fall that will teach students even more about culture responsiveness, diversity, respect, and tolerance.

'No Place For Hate' is sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League and is designed to empower teachers, students, administrators, and parents to tackle prejudice, bullying, and inter-group conflict.
