In 2016, Grade 8/Secondary 2 classes were asked to make a one-minute video about one of Parks Canada’s many sites. Many amazing entries were submitted, making it more difficult than ever for the judges to pick this year’s winners. Congratulations to everyone who entered.
Duke of Connaught Junior and Senior Public School of Toronto, Ontario
Mrs. Ramsay’s grade 7/8 class at Duke of Connaught School in Toronto, Ontario, highlighted both the natural and cultural significance of Canada’s only National Urban Park – Rouge National Urban Park. These talented students were able to share lots of information with the audience in a clear and concise way, highlighting some great camera and audio skills. Because of their informative and entertaining video, they will now be spending the second week of June in Jasper National Park on a once-in-a-lifetime class trip! Congratulations!
Caroline Robins Community School, Saskatoon, SK
The students of Caroline Robins Community School creatively transported their audience on a musical journey to Prince Albert National Park, discussing some of the amazing activities that visitors can do in this Saskatchewan national park.
Kensington Intermediate Senior High, Kensington, PE
KISH 8B might be small, but their messages rang loud and clear. They highlighted the important conservation efforts and fun activities that people can take part in when they visit Prince Edward Island National Park.
St. Luke School, North Bay, ON
The historic home of our first Prime Minister was the site for St. Luke’s field trip this year and the inspiration for their video entry. History certainly came to life in this video about Bellevue House in Kingston, Ontario.
