HOLMEN, Wis. (WXOW) – Students at Viking Elementary win first place in a state-wide breakfast video contest.
The contest was put on by the Department of Public Instruction and the Hunger Task Force. Both were at the event at Holmen Middle School on Friday morning to award the winning students. Students across the state, of all ages, entered the contest.
Members of Holmen’s Student Nutritional Advisory Council (SNAC) entered the video and took first place. The video was a remake of Queen’s song, We Will Rock You. Fourth grader Moira Linse said, “Kind of shocking because we didn’t know this was for the whole Wisconsin. We thought it was kind of just in the school district, but finding out it was the whole Wisconsin was pretty cool.”
The winners received a check for $1,000 and a plaque for the video. They hope to use some of the money for a pizza party and the rest to help out the school district.
