Best Buddies club members at two Iowa high schools have created videos to discourage the use of the word "retarded" as part of their participation in the "Spread the Word to End the Word" campaign. In one video, general- and special-education students work together to tear up paper including offensive words. City High School's video featured students' explanations of why the word is hurtful to them. "It's a very insulting word," said Leah Reisinger, a ninth-grade student who helped with the project.
