Girls on the Run and the Mean Stinks campaign was the emphasis for an essay writing contest sponsored by Girls on the Run of Magee-Women's Hospital of UPMC.

Tyler Pilarski, a fourth-grader at Central Elementary of Hampton School District, and Camryn Turner, a sixth-grader at Shaler Elementary, each penned award-winning essays.

Tyler, in poetic form, wrote about how Girls on the Run empowers her to resist bullying and how Mean Stinks is an important campaign to let bullies know “that bullying will no longer be tolerated anywhere for any reason.”

Camryn wrote about how Girls on the Run has given her a way to deal with bullying by using what she calls the “stop, breathe, listen and respond system.”

She also highlighted how the program “makes you feel better about yourself” and how that is the central mission of the organization.
