LOWELLL (CBS) – What’s being billed as the country’s largest anti-bullying event in the country, brought 5,000 students and teachers to the Tsongas Center Thursday.

Stand Up 2012 was developed with anti-bullying experts to empower students to bring change to their schools and communities.

Students and teachers from New England attended the one-day event, featuring music students wrote about bullying and focus groups on how to stop it.

“I think bullying is a huge thing, I’ve been bullied since third grade. I’ve been through a lot, I’ve been in the hospital because of it. I want to be here because I want to show people that you can stop it and it needs to be stopped,” one of the students told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kim Tunnicliffe.
