Kindergartners from West Vigo Elementary school paid a visit to the Terre Haute Children’s Museum Wednesday.
The kids made a promise to use their hands for good things, instead of bullying.
It’s all in an effort to prevent bullying at a young age.

The Vigo County Medical Alliance sponsored the event.
