Students at St. George Catholic Elementary School hope to win a short-video contest but they need help from the community.
The elementary school in Crystal Beach is one of 13 finalists in the 2018 Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association Short-Video Contest.
This year’s theme for the contest is Community Builders and students in Grades 4 to 12 were invited to submit a video that demonstrates how their school or-parish-based charitable or social justice initiatives have strengthened their community.
The winners of the contest will be selected through online voting. Members of the community are encouraged to access St. George’s video and vote for the school at www.togetherinfaith.ca.
The first place prize is a $300 Best Buy gift certificate for the winning school; the second prize is a $150 Best Buy certificate and the third place prize is a $100 Indigo gift certificate.
Voting ends on Dec. 31 at 6 p.m. The winners will be announced on Monday, Jan. 21.
