CONCORD, NH – Students in Susan Senecal’s fourth grade class at Hills Garrison Elementary School in Hudson received a surprise visit from New Hampshire tourism officials, learning their video, “New Hampshire Vacation,” won the grand prize in the 2015 Class Act Video Awards.

Mrs. Senecal’s class was presented with a trophy after viewing a congratulatory video from the NH Division of Travel and Tourism Development (DTTD) Director Victoria Cimino. For their efforts the class won a field trip up one of New Hampshire’s oldest attractions the Mount Washington Cog Railway, with luxury transportation provided by Premier Coach.

Fourth grade classes around New Hampshire were encouraged to create 60 second videos for the Class Act Video Awards using their imagination, as well as what they’ve learned about the state, to show visitors how much fun it would be to visit New Hampshire.  Twenty videos were submitted, with Mrs. Senecal’s class winning grand prize.

Debbie Sawyer’s fourth grade class at Wheelock Elementary School in Keene earned runner up for the video, “Moose on the Loose in NH.”  Valley Snow Dogz will host the class at their Thornton location for an educational and interactive sled-dog experience.

Garrett Ferguson’s fourth grade class at Lafayette Regional School in Franconia earned honorable mention with the video, “Brake for NH, It Could Save Your Day!”  The Remick Country Doctor Museum and Farm will host the students for an educational and fun filled day at their farm in Tamworth.

The videos and all the entries can be viewed on NH DTTD’s official YouTube Channel.
