NHAMLE/NELMS 1st Annual Video Contest

Winner Winner!!

Well, you did it, 30 videos were submitted for the "We Love Our School Because"Video Contest!  We are thrilled to have so many outstanding schools participate in this year's event.  

We want to thank everyone who submitted videos.  We had 30 videos representing schools across NH. They were all great, and while the differences in them were as different as each school, we loved all of them.  Our NH students did an outstanding job.

Our judges had the challenging job of applying the rubric and making a final decision.  There were lots of smiles, laughs, and compliments for each video, however, in the end, after more than two hours of viewing and discussing, the judges did make a final decision.  

Here is a mashup that includes clips from all of the great videos we received:


The Third Place Winner is the Cooperative Middle School in Stratham.  Lead teacher Ms. Swanson.
