KWN Global Contest 2011 Awards Ceremony held in Hollywood
The KWN Global Contest 2011 Awards Ceremony was held at the Globe Theatre in Universal Studios Hollywood, California, on July 21st. Finalists from six schools were in the running, selected from the 679 schools from 26 countries and regions around the world. The students from the finalist schools were joined by their teachers, KWN members from neighboring schools, and media, for a total attendance of more than 200 people. The Grand Prize went to the representatives of the host country, Val Verde High School in California. Their video, titled "Without Me,? was a public service message that told the touching story of a youngster who was on the verge of committing suicide -- a subject that reflects a profound problem among people everywhere. The judges evaluated the video highly for the extremely strong message that it conveyed.
The videos from the other finalist schools focused on the environment, such as reminding us of the importance of water, describing the role of mangroves, and drawing attention to the need for recycling.
