We submitted several videos to the FAME - Jim Harbin Student Media Festival at the end of last year. All of our videos advanced to the Regional level of the competition and judging for Regionals was held over the summer. I was just notified that 2 of our entries took 1st place and have advanced to the State level of the competition!!! And the winners are...
Pirate Reaction Game Show - Comedy - Grade 5
A Haunted Halloween - Drama - Grade 5
Judging for the State-wide competition will take place in September, so keep your fingers crossed for our 2 videos!!!
