The U.S. Department of Education announced today that the following students are winners of its “I Am What I Learn” video contest: Rene Harris, Alex Hughes and Jordan Lederman.
Shane Battier and Myron Rolle taped video addresses for the “I Am What I Learn” video contest, hosted by the U.S. Department of Education and YouTube. In their videos, they each describe the role education plays in their lives, and they encourage students to dedicate themselves to their own education.
Since September 21, hundreds of students across the country have responded to the President's call to take greater responsibility for their education by creating videos explaining why education is important to their future. In less than two months, students submitted more than 600 video entries to the "I Am What I Learn" video contest, hosted by the U.S. Department of Education and YouTube.
