Gifted and Talented 5th graders at Mary Blair Elementary School (Anika, Addie, Maggie, Aryana, Kaden, Hayden, Gavin and Joseph) entered the 2017 Colorado Potato Video Contest and won! They voted as a group to take on the project even though they only had one week to pull it all together. Anika wrote the script with parts for everyone, Addie had the idea for the talking potato, Maggie and Aryana helped with costumes and they all memorized the lines. The group created a video and Anika put it together.
The students won a salad bar for the school and $600 for their classroom.
