SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Sometimes, the clothes you wear can make a statement.

Throughout this week, students and faculty at Sioux City North and East Middle Schools are wearing a color to promote awareness of bullying in school.

On Wednesday, they wore pink. About 50 girls, who make up the "Girls Circle" at the two schools, had T-shirts printed that urge others to "be the difference." Many of the students say the project is already setting their schools apart.

"I think it's pretty good because there's a lot of kids who get bullied and there's a lot of kids who step up and help them and will be there for them any time that they need them," said Tasia Fondren, an 8th grader at North Middle.

"It makes me kind of glad that we're getting all together and doing this for the kids, who get bullied and don't stand up for them because they know that we're going to be there for them," sad Cynthia Venegas, an 8th grader at North.

On Monday, students wore purple for cyber-bullying, Tuesday, it was red. On Thursday, it'll be yellow, and Friday, they'll wear school colors to show their school is making a difference.
