STAUNTON -- A winter project at the Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind is being put in the spotlight. Panasonic sponsored a contest for videos by deaf students and theirs made it in the top 10.
This year VSDB started a news show called “Kid Witness News.” Panasonic sponsored the equipment and now this contest.
The class submitted two videos in February. One for social issues and another for environmental. They found out this week that their video made it to the top ten.
"We really are excited, and I'm so proud of the students. We needed something like that to really inspire us and to show why we're here, what we're learning and doing this together," said Faithlyn Robinson, the photography teacher.
The students are just as excited as the teachers.
"I can't wait to see what we find out later. And what we can do in the future. And what it's going to look like. I've never been to New York. How cool would it be to go there!" said Teshauna Bolding, a student.
In two weeks, they'll know if they made the top four and if they'll be going to New York to accept a plaque.
