HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Three North Alabama schools are being recognized for their efforts to crackdown on bullying.

Westlawn Middle School is one of three schools that earn the "No Place For Hate" distinction.

The program gives students the opportunity to learn about damaging impact that bullying can have on students.

The students at Westlawn completed three activities that addressed bullying.

"We educate on how it looks and how it feels and then we have to associate the consequences of where it could lead to negativity for the students. And they invest in making a difference in how they see it in their lives and then we're going to see change," said counselor Ashley Felder.

"No Place For Hate" empowers students, teachers and parents to tackle prejudice, bullying and intergroup conflict.

Grissom and Whitesburg K-8 also earned the distinction.
