Here are our winners for our 2012-2013 4th Grade Ski History Video Contest!

We received some great videos from NH schools, including videos that showcased famous NH ski racers, “epic” newscasts, and the history and community of one NH resort. 

Grand Prize Winner ($500): Lafayette Regional School- Franconia, NH
2nd Place Winner ($300): Garrison Elementary School- Dover, NH
3rd Place Winner ($200): Sanbornton Central School- Sanbornton, NH

The Lafayette Regional School created a video about the history of Cannon Mountain and its surrounding community. They researched and interviewed local authors, ski area employees (past & present), including John DeVivo the current General Manager at Cannon Mountain, and community members. Their video was well put together and contained historical information and personal experiences. Mr. Ferguson, 4th grade teacher at Lafayette Regional School stated “Not only have we learned how to make and edit a movie, but we can now better appreciate Cannon Mountain that sits in our backyard.” We will be working on posting the winning school video soon.

Congratulations to all schools! We look forward to seeing your videos next year!
