Kindergarten and sixth-grade video students at Mitchell Elementary School received state and local recognition this month. Both groups received awards for best video from the Student Media Festival, a statewide competition sponsored by KOCE-TV, the California Library Assn. and other education organizations.
Both student groups also won an Award of Distinction from the Los Angeles Student Media Festival held at USC. Sixty kindergarten students helped create "Rhyme Time," which presented student stories with animation, and 15 sixth-graders helped create "Movin' to Australia," a story about a student who decides life might be better if she moved to Australia.
