Student photographers in northwestern Nassau County took aim at bullying — with their cameras.

The Town of North Hempstead and Long Island Press co-sponsored an anti-hate photo contest in which elementary, middle or high school students captured images that address bullying. The theme, Not In Our Town, required entries that illustrate how participants stand up to hate in their community or school.

Pictured here are the 12 winning photos of the anti-hate initiative that
has the goal of building safe, inclusive communities for all.
