As part of Beverly Hills' Embrace Civility program, the City Council and Human Relations Commission recognized several Beverly Hills students for their highly successful and compelling bullying prevention videos, which all placed high in the city's public service announcement competition. 

The commission held a Bullying Prevention video competition, with a prompt "Everyone plays a role in bullying…The bully, the bullied and the bystander or… The person who makes a difference! What’s your take?"

Participants came from many of the local schools and as far away as the High Desert Middle School in Acton California. 

At the Oct. 15 City Council meeting the winning students were honored with proclamations and attendees watched the videos.

Here are the top videos from the competition, including "The Silent Word" by Sara Sacks, Sarah Yadegari and Talia Mahbouhi:
