Walker Elementary has some budding filmmakers.
A group of Authors, Illustrators, and Journalists (AIJ), led by second grade teacher Ms. Grace Nall, took on the challenge of making a short documentary. Meeting weekly after school, the enrichment club orchestrated a story and employed newly aquired film/editing skills. In the end, their cooking-show approach resulted in a nomination for an Innovative Video in Education (iVIE) Award.
This Saturday, Ms. Nall and the Walker AIJ club will travel to Lincoln High School for a day of video screenings and awards. While they hope to come away with some recognition, students know that the skills they've acquired are the real benefit.
Walker Student Anthony Gambito was interviewed about the upcoming awards.
