The students in grade 7 and 8 at Milton Christian School spent many months researching and creating a video to submit for the ‘My Parks Canada Coolest Class Trip’ contest. Even though we were a small school and did not anticipate being able to get enough votes to win the competition we gave it our best shot. We worked very hard and created a 60-second video that highlighted The Rideau Canal as a significant place in Canada. The end result was something that we were very proud of and had high hopes for.
As the three weeks of voting came to a close we were not in the top 10 spots, which was required to qualify for the grand prize. Although disappointed, we were proud of our work and accomplishments. A week after the voting closed we received an email saying that our video received an honourable mention award. We were excited to receive the award and the recognition of our hard work. We want to thank everyone for voting for us and supporting us throughout this process!
