Congratulations to our 7th graders, Alexis Klimpl, Caitlin Witt-Lau and Haley Lambert-Zielomski.  They won first place in the middle school division of  the Hawaiian Humane Society "Shout-Out for Animals" video contest. They will each receive a cash prize of $50 and a private "behind-the-scenes" tour of the Hawaiian Humane Society, an invitation to a special shelter event and mention of their winning entry on the Society's website and quarterly newsletter. Their winning video is titled "The Plan",  a humorous short video about animal overpopulation and is posted on the Humane Society website.
