VBrick Systems Announces Winners of the ‘Student Victory’ Video Contest

Contest Submissions offer Compelling Examples of how Video is Reshaping the Classroom, Offering New Ways for Students to Engage in Both their Coursework and Community

Enterprise IP video leader VBrick Systems announced the winners of its first ‘Student Victory’ Video Contest. The contest attracted submissions from across the country, with participating students ranging from elementary to high school age. The ‘Student Victory’ contest was created to tap into the creative ways schools are using video to change the learning experience, leveraging the talent of today’s video-savvy students. As more students use video on a daily basis and a growing number of schools adopt classroom-based video technology initiatives like ‘flip the classroom’ and ‘1:1’ computing, our winners serve as great examples of how video can truly enrich the school experience for students, teachers and parents. The winners, per category, are:

“We would like to thank all the students for sharing their creativity and taking the time to produce the videos. We’d also like to thank the teachers and administrators for embracing this contest to ensure education is more relevant and effective through the use of video technology. Watching and judging the submissions was our pleasure, some of the youngest on-air “talent” are already displaying the advantages and resulting sophistication of growing up as digital natives. Big congratulations to the winners and schools that received honorable mentions,” said Greg Zweig, Director of Corporate Communications, VBrick.
