Omaha, Neb. – Three elementary school classrooms from across the nation have been selected as winners of WoodmenLife’s “America Is …” video contest.
The contest — which drew 25 entries — aimed to get elementary school students excited about history, and to show pride in their school, community and country. Students were asked to create 30–60 second videos on the topic “What America means to me” for the opportunity to win up to $2,500 for their school.
The contest was open to all elementary school classroom teachers, principals, other staff members and school-affiliated organizations. Winners were chosen by popular vote on WoodmenLife’s Facebook page. More than 10,000 votes were cast. Three prizes will be awarded:
“We are delighted that students from all over the nation demonstrated their creativity and enthusiasm for what America means to them. The video entries did a great job of expressing patriotism and the many reasons why we celebrate, love and support our country,” said Patrick L. Dees, WoodmenLife President & CEO.
