BARRINGTON – Barrington High School students received word from Washington D.C. today that BHS-TV's earlier submitted "The School of Tomorrow, Today" video has not been selected as the winning White House Film Festival contest entry.
In its first year, the White House Film Festival contest "received more than 2,000 entries that demonstrated much talent, hard work and enthusiasm for technology and learning," according to an e-mail from contest officials.
BHS-TV students received an "Honorable Mention" award for their three-minute video, which will soon be featured online at WhiteHouse.gov/FilmFestival.
The video features three digital BHS classes founded by the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation.
BHS-TV President Peter Chung said BHS strives to "lead the way in in innovative technology for students, with dedication to instructing the student of tomorrow, today.”
