Virtual Veterans Day Video Contest Winners

Seven APS students were recognized for creating winning videos at the recent virtual Veterans Day “What a Veteran Means to Me” video contest.

The New Mexico Veterans Memorial board in cooperation with the Junior ROTC program at APS, recently hosted a memorial’s video contest to encourage students to honor a veteran.  Titled “What a Veteran Means to Me,” the video contest challenged students to create a one-minute video that tells the story about an important veteran in their life. The winning videos were shown at the Virtual Veterans Day ceremony.  Video entries were scored on four criteria: content, organization, production quality, and originality. Students competed for cash prizes and a memorial tile dedicated to them and their veteran.
