Incline fifth-graders place second in national contest

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. - A group of fifth-grade Incline Elementary School students, lead by Laurel Federick, recently made a video for the Pour One Out contest held by The Center for Science in the Public Interest.

IES students won second place in the national contest. The prize is $500, and the funds will be used to further our science program at Incline Elementary School.

The video, entitled "Pour one out ... and Fill One Up," was produced by the following students: Ana Galvan, Brayden Hock, Hailey Sharenbrock, Tyler Knight, Daniel Rojas, Garen Cross, Maria Jimenez, Luis Castillo, Carolina Vargas, Jake Harrell, Dylan Shean, Jennifer Alamilla Lopez, Jazmin Enriquez Ramirez, Lupita Martinez, Reyna Baez, Christian Cojoc, Angelica Herrera, Jennifer Bello, Yareth Cabrera, Ashley Duran, Tanya Neely, Oliver Garcia and Christina Cervantes Cruz.

These fifth-grade students made the video during Laurel Frederick's after school club. Ms. Frederick is an AmeriCorps member and the Science and Outdoor Education Program coordinator at Incline Elementary School. The students participating in the after school club learned about the harmful effects of sugary drinks by participating in hands-on activities. Ultimately, the students collaborated to work on the video for the contest.

To view the award winning video, go to the Center for Science in the Public Interest website at http://cspinet.org/liquidcandy/pouroneout.html - or to the IES Science website at http://iesoutdoorscience.com.
