Four fifth-grade students at PS7 Elementary School in Sacramento were first-place winners of the national "It's Cool 2B Creative Contest."
The contest was sponsored by The Be Kind People Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to recognizing teachers and positively impacting students. Students were invited to create a 2.5-minute video of a song, theatrical performance or dance that illustrates how kindness has impacted their lives.
The students' first-place win means PS7 will receive a $250 grant. Every student at the school also will receive a silicone sports watch and other gifts in March, according to the press release.
Leila Cole, Bobby Burns, Ali Edwards and Chianne Carrier were named the winners of the contest for their song titled "KDJC," which conveys the importance of friendship through its lyrics, according to a press release from the non-profit organization.
The students' hard work also makes them this blog's Golden Apple winners this week.
