HERNDON, VA. -- Enterprise IP video provider VBrick Systems announced the winners of its second Student Video Contest. Once again, the contest attracted submissions from across the country, with participating students ranging from elementary to high school age.

The winners, per category, are:

Best Morning Announcement, Grades K-8 - Santo Niño Elementary School - Laredo, Texas

The winning videos can be viewed at the VBrick website.

“We would like to thank all the students for sharing their talent and for taking the time to produce so many creative videos. We ’d also like to thank the teachers and administrators for embracing this contest to ensure education is more relevant and effective through the use of video technology. We are continually impressed by the professionalism of the submissions; congratulations to the winners and schools that received honorable mentions, ” said Mike Benson, vice president of Educational Sales at VBrick.

One of the contest categories failed to generate a sufficient number of entries. Consequently, VBrick has decided to donate the prize (a video camera) to its neighbors in Newtown, Conn. Since many of its staff members live near Newtown, the company said it “wanted to offer this small gift as a way to help the school to share some new memories after such tragic events. ”
