Brooks-produced video among top honorees in statewide contest

BOLINGBROOK – A 60-second informational video clip featuring Brooks Middle School students is one of the top prize winners in the Illinois Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (IAHPERD) “Bone Health” video contest.

The Brooks video, produced and directed by physical education teacher David Burke, finished fourth in the contest bringing a $600 stipend and a new set of jump ropes to the Bolingbrook school’s PE program.

Burke, who has a background in video editing and has produced several instructional videos, accepted the award at the group’s statewide conference last month.

“It was an honor for Brooks to get a state-level award like this,” he said. “We put a lot of work into it, and I’m really proud of our students.”
