TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- Kids from the Boys and Girls clubs of north Mississippi hope a monster will put a dent in bullying.
The students wrote anti-bullying messages on a demolition car that will be crushed during the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam on Friday.
It's crush time at the Bancorp South arena as the children get fired-up about bullying.
"Why would you bully somebody if you don't want to be bullied yourself," said Siani Coleman.
"I want the bullying to stop because bullying is not nice," said Triniti McGee.
The students were able to express themselves on a demo car with red paint, a brush, and sometimes a finger.
This exercise is a way to bring to life the anit-bullying program already in place at the club, according to Matty Mabry of the Boys & Girls Club in Haven Acres.
"We teach about healthy choices, respecting each others space, and respecting each other. That's all bullying is about-self-respect and respecting others," Mabry said.
McGee said she's seen kids get picked on.
"I've seen people calling them fat and ugly," McGee said.
She said she hopes the crushing sends a message to the bullies.
"I want to tell the bullies to stop calling people names and be nice to each other," McGee added.
Jaden Boyd, 6, said he hopes the crushing sends a different message to people.
"Stand up for yourself. If you get bullied go tell a teacher," Boyd said.
The car along with all the messages will be flattened Friday by a monster truck weighing over 5 tons.
