Nathan Pillai, junior, Burke Centre Library Teen Advisory Board and Robinson Secondary School “I was recipient of Fairfax County Peace Award for our efforts in combatting bullying around the County. Well, we took a look at a Fairfax County student survey report and we found a shocking statistic that over 50 percent of students around the County had reported being bullied at least once. So we thought that was a shocking statistic and shouldn't be happening in a County such as Fairfax, so we decided to take matters into our own hands by raising awareness through an anti-bullying fair, where we invited anti-bullying organizations from around the state to come and give presentations on their own efforts. And we invited students to come and tell their own stories about their experiences with bullying and how they dealt with the issues.”
