Congratulations to the 2010 Service-Learning Multimedia Showcase Winners!

With support from the State Farm Companies Foundation, the National Service-Learning Partnership (NSLP) at the Academy for Educational Development is proud to announce the winners of the 2010 We Are a Solution: Youth Changing the World Through Service-Learning Multimedia Showcase!

Each of the winners will receive $500 to help support their service-learning efforts in their school/organization.

Middle School Division
Tchefuncte Middle School (Mandeville, LA)
Tchefuncte Middle School scored enough points with the judges that their slight loss in votes did not affect the outcome. The judges stated that "The students' personal touch and emotional connection with their project was charming," and that "this fantastic project...makes me want to go do the same thing!"

High School Division
Clarkstown High School North (New City, NY)
Clarkstown High School North scored both the highest score with the judges and the most votes from the public. The judges said that this "extremely touching" video "is the best video of the bunch by far. This video shows the passion that the whole school has for SL and this global issue."

All of the videos were wonderful! Please go to our YouTube channel to see all of the great entries.
