WoodmenLife Awards Schools $5,000 in Patriotic Video Contest

WoodmenLife recently announced the winners of its “America Is …” Video Contest. The contest is geared toward elementary students and is meant to spur interest in learning about American history, their community and patriotism. Students across the country created original 60-second videos illustrating the contest’s “We the People” theme.

Open to all elementary school classroom teachers, principals, staff members, and school-affiliated organizations, the contest received 28 entries. The winners were decided by public voting on WoodmenLife’s Facebook page, and thousands of votes were cast. The top three winners were:

1st place winner of $2,500 – West Point Elementary, West Point, NE

2nd place winner of $1,500 – Kiroli Elementary, West Monroe, LA

3rd place winner of $1,000 – Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary, Rio Rancho, NM

“WoodmenLife is thrilled to host this yearly contest because we get to see elementary students from across the country celebrating our nation and showing their pride for their communities,” said Patrick L. Dees, WoodmenLife President & CEO.

In the coming weeks, WoodmenLife will highlight the top three winner videos on their YouTube channel and Facebook page.
