Encouraging kids to be nice

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) For the sixth year in a row, the Connecting with Community Awards have spotlighted local collaborations that are making a difference in the West Michigan community. Eight finalists have been selected from local nominations.

One of them addresses the issue of bullying. The be nice. program strives to change the culture of bullying and puts an emphasis on how people treat each other. It is a collaboration between the Mental Health Foundation of West Michigan, Rivertown Crossings Mall, two Goodwill stores, and 105.3 Hot FM radio DJ Wing Man.
