LYNDONVILLE – Lyndonville’s fifth and sixth-grade art students won first place in the Rural School Association’s Video Contest: “Our School, Our Community.”

Thirty students in Amanda LeClair’s art class worked together to create the award-winning video.

“As a class we had just finished working on artistic maps of Lyndonville, inspired by artist Aaron Meshon,” said LeClair. “When we saw the theme of the RSA Video Contest, we thought our maps would fit perfectly.”

The class developed a script and each student had an opportunity to record their voice describing special places in Lyndonville that make their school and community great. The colorful maps they created in art class were featured along with pictures of the actual destinations.

Representatives from RSA will be attending Lyndonville’s Elementary Awards Ceremony on June 18 to present certificates and a $500 check.
