I require the project for a grade, but the students have the option of submitting the video in the National contest. For the first time, we have a team who has completed the submission process, and their video is in the contest.
The students did all the work on their own. I was so impressed with the output. Due to rights with music, they had to do a quick revision and create their own song. They put a lot of time and effort into the project, and my other students enjoyed watching what they created.
I love it when students can go above and beyond the requirements. I believe this is a great foundation tool for future endeavors.
Voting began February 4, 2014, and it runs through March 14, 2014. Please take a minute and go vote for their video. There is a quick login process, but it only takes a second. You can vote every day! The winning video wins scholarships for the team members.
