Copiague Middle School sixth-graders attended the sixth semiannual antibullying campaign conference at Hofstra University on Oct. 18.
The campaign was presented in conjunction with Northwell Health System and Hofstra WRHU, the college’s radio station.
The sixth-grade students listened to guest speakers who discussed a range of topics on bullying. They also attended a workshop/breakout session where they discussed different ideas to bring back to their school. Students worked with a local artist to create a piece of art that represented what they felt the world would look like if bullying no longer existed.
Students were treated to a performance by dancer Cartier Conway and also received T-shirts, bags and tickets to an upcoming Long Island Nets basketball game for their participation in the event.
