THE BRONX - Students in the Bronx have received a special honor for their efforts to put an end to bullying in schools.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) presented six Bronx schools, among dozens of other city schools, with a banner for their participation in the “No Place For Hate” program.

Fifth-grader Ariana Ramos says the “No Place For Hate” committee at P.S. 72 has made a difference at her school.

"Less people are bullying in the school and the community,” said Ramos. “Everyone's having respect for one another."

P.S. 72 officials say they will be taping an anti-bullying public service announcement in September.
