GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich High student Erik Milbauer recently took home second place in a video challenge contest held by the Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents and the Connecticut Association of Schools, according to a press release.
Students developed, shot and edited films with the premise of how "student voices" could influence education in Connecticut.
Milbauer's film, which tied for second in the high school category, suggested ways to engage students more in classes.
“Every video we received was creative, engaging and revealed a passion for improving public education in Connecticut,” Joseph J. Cirasuolo, executive director of the Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents, said in the release. “We congratulate the students on their achievements and commend them for taking the time to develop such creative and engaging videos.”
With his second-place finish, Milbauer won a $700 scholarship.
