A special seminar was held Saturday at Butler aimed at bullying awareness and prevention.

The "End Bullying Now" forum was designed for parents, teachers, coaches, police and others  to give them the tools to recognize bullying and what to do about it.

Annie Kern from the Marion County Prosecutor's Office explained,  "We want to make sure that everyone sees that it's their responsibility to report bullying or to be a part of what stops and ends bullying."

The forum sponsored by the Marion County Prosecutor's Office was timed to coincide with the beginning of the school year for most school districts.
