Templeton Middle School sixth-graders Elizabeth “Katie” Henderson, Chelsi Reilly, Katelyn Sasse, Margaret Stollberg and Taylor Woods were named winners in a Time Warner video contest. The students’ script was one of 20 selected from more than 500 entries for the Hang Tough Video Contest in which students from southeastern Wisconsin created messages encouraging their peers to “hang tough” and enjoy life without drugs and violence.
The students’ 30-second segment, called “Life,” will be taped and produced by Time Warner professionals and may be aired on various cable channels in the spring. The Templeton finalists and their entire sixth grade blue team will be invited to the Hang Tough Video Awards Premiere in February. At the awards premiere, a panel of judges will select the first, second and third place winners from the 20 final entries.
