The 2012 Human Rights Music Video contest turned out a lot of excellent projects – once again. The students – well most of them – put a lot of time and effort into this project and it shows in their videos. Their verbal presentations were equally as impressive as most of the students delved in to subjects such as war, poverty, bullying, genocide, & residential schools. I would like to congratulate all of the students who finished this project.
Over the last few weeks there have been two contests – The People’s Choice Award, and the Best Video Contest. The public were open to vote in the People’s Choice Award (obviously), and just the grade 9 students voted for the Best Video (ahhh… democracy!). The voting period ended on Friday, April 20.
Here are your winners.
The People’s Choice Award was extremely close. Votes were still pouring in after the deadline but unfortunately those votes will not count. Thank you to all those who took the time to view all the projects, comment, and/or email me their vote. It really means a lot – not only to me, but to the students as well. So after two recounts - there was a tie for the award! The winners of The People’s Choice Award goes to:
No Bravery by James Blunt. Project by Jeremy D…
… and Keep Changing the World by MIKESCAIR. Project by Jessica P.http://blogs.wsd1.org/tecvoc-blogmas/files/2012/04/Jessica.flv
Four students were nominated, and voted, to represent their homerooms for the Best Video Contest. The remaining grade 9 students viewed and voted for which one they thought was the best. I am happy to announce the winner for this year is Anne V. with her project Where is the Love by the Black Eyed Peas. You can watch her video below.http://blogs.wsd1.org/tecvoc-blogmas/files/2012/04/AnneV.flv
Not to be forgotten are the other three finalists this year: Anna C (When I look at You – Miley Cyrus), Temboy O. (I’ll Never Understand – Shad K), and Allyn S. (Wavin’ Flag – Young Artists). You can view their project by clicking on the link “2012 Human Rights Finalists” in the right column.
