Hudson 4th grade class wins NH tourism award
HUDSON (AP) - A fourth-grade class at a Hudson elementary school is headed to the top of Mount Washington after winning first place for their tourism video on why the Granite State is a fun place to visit.
The New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism says Susan Senecal's 4th grade class at the Hills Garrison School placed first among 20 contestants in this year's Class Act Video Awards.
Their 60-second video answered the question, ""Why should people come to New Hampshire and what makes it special?"
For winning the grade prize, the students will be picked up in a coach bus and taken to the Mount Washington Cog Railway - one of the state's oldest tourist attractions.
Fourth graders in Keene took second place. Franconia 4th-graders placed third.
