They Are the Champions - Spread the Word Against Vandalism

The Longmont Youth Council recently sponsored a citywide contest looking for innovative and creative one-minute videos displaying how to positively take action and spread the word against vandalism. Six young ladies from Mrs. Thaler's STEM Broadcasting class entered and came out on top winning 1st place. The TRMS students were interviewed with Longmont Channel 8 TV news at the Youth Center on March 24th and received a $200 prize to share. Their video will also be aired on a future Channel 8 News cast. Congratulations to Kayla H., Natasha R., Sidney J., Sami P. Jimena A., Kate P.
