Rockwood Valley Students Win 'Show-Me A Movie' Contest
Sponsored by Cooperating School Districts, Show-Me A Movie is a digital storytelling contest that provides students in grades 2-12 the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity and digital movie making skills.
A video created by seventh-grade students Becca Treat, Katherine Karsten, Kate Schrichte, Lina Qi and Nina Ruan at Rockwood Valley Middle School students in Wildwood won top honors for creativity in the 2012 Show-Me A Movie Contest. Their video, “Acid Rain Dissolving the Future,” explains the problem of acid rain and how people can make a difference.
Rockwood Valley Middle teacher Caroline Podgornik said she was impressed with her students' work.
"These young ladies did an excellent job sharing their ideas and listening to each other. The result was the creation of a dynamic video with a real world message," said Podgornik.
On Feb. 12, this video, along with the other category winners, will be showcased at the annual Midwest Education Technology Conference, according to district materials.
The students and Podgornik also will be honored by Rockwood at the Feb. 21 Board of Education Awards Ceremony.
