Secaucus Middle School students win award for environmental video

SECAUCUS – Students from Secaucus Middle School are among the winners of the 2015 KWN New Vision & Eco-Effect Awards. KWN (Kid Witness News) is a hands-on video education program with an emphasis on team-centered learning that encourages students to develop valuable cognitive, communication, and organizational skills through the use of state-of-the-art, high definition video technology. Panasonic provides students in grades 4 -12 (age 18 and under) with the latest digital equipment so that they can communicate stories that are important to them and their communities. Themes include such issues as the environment, peer pressure, and drug prevention.
Secaucus Middle School was among the four winners of the Eco-Effect Award. The other winners were Oakland Gardens School (Bayside, NY), Prairie View Elementary School (Enid, OK), and Val Verde High School (Perris, CA).
The winning schools will be invited to participate in the KWN Winners Weekend from Thursday, May 8 to Sunday, May 10 – an all-expense paid trip to celebrate their accomplishments with a host of exciting activities in the NJ/NY area. Awards will be given during a luncheon and student exchange. Winning teams will also receive a trophy and banner to hang prominently in their school, as well as recognition on the KWN website.
Today, 622 schools worldwide participate in KWN program. Panasonic, in conjunction with local public school systems, supports KWN teams in 75 participating schools in the U.S. and 29 countries internationally.
