Middle school students in Bettendorf, Iowa hope to put an end to the problem of bullying by becoming part of the solution.

School officials say 73 sixth grade students celebrated the launch of their anti-bullying billboard on the outside of the school gym on Monday, December 2, 2013.

To accomplish their goal, students came up with anti-bullying themed slogans.

They narrowed the selections down to one per class and worked in small groups to design a billboard layout for the slogan.

The final designs were voted on by the entire student body to determine a slogan and design that: best represented the anti-bullying message, had universal appeal, was creative and unique, and had an attractive and quality format.

The winning slogan came from Alexa Schmidt, Charlie Hornaday, and Gabe France.

Madison Wuorinen and Sami Roemer constructed the winning design.

The billboard will be on permanent display by the school's gym entrance, located at 2030 Middle Rd.
