C-SPAN, lawmakers honor NHS students

State legislators and a C-SPAN representative visited Norwell High School Thursday to congratulate six seniors for challenging Congress.

The students — Kelly McAvoy, Alyssa Gill, Ashley Miller, Jenna Meyer, Bailey Gerber and Stephanie Macon — had recently created two videos for their government class and a nationwide contest, and in March, C-SPAN chose their projects as two of 150 winners from 2,355 other submissions as among the best in the nation.

C-SPAN annually sponsors the competition to ask students to define and illustrate the nation’s most pressing issue, and Norwell government teacher, Kristen Ludwig, decided to also use the contest to assess her students’ knowledge while they studied Congress for six weeks.

Watch the McAvoy, Gill and Miller's video below, and learn more in the Friday, May 16, News-Banner.
