Tortolita Middle School students swept the top three awards for a Southern Arizona contest to end bullying.

The Fund for Civility, Respect and Understanding's Anti-Bullying Task Force held a "Step Up, Speak Out, End Bullying PSA Contest" this spring.

At last weekend's award ceremony at the Loft Cinema, Tortolita Middle School students won the grand prize, the runner up and an award called "Radio Ready."

Mikayla Curcio won the Grand Prize with her video "What if That Were You?" She was awarded an iPad Mini and her PSA will air on Cox Cable TV this fall.

Runner Up went to Alison Plocki for "What Will They Think?"

The Radio Ready award went to Cyan Cornett for "Don't Be Afraid." She will work with Bobby Rich at MixFM to convert her video PSA to a radio spot which will be played on MixFM this fall.
