Hunter Middle 7th-Grader Wins Best In State For Water Conservation Video

Wednesday, May 27, 2020

A seventh-grader at Hunter Middle School produced an award-winning video to help conserve water.  Ella Davis, a seventh-grader this past school year at Hunter Middle, won Best in State in the World of 7 Billion contest.  Ms. Davis took top honors in Tennessee with her video titled “Preserving Clean and Safe Water.”  She produced the video as part of a class project for gifted students in Angie Hentz’s class at Hunter Middle.
 
There were 2,593 videos submitted nationwide in this year’s contest. Approximately,  5,106 students participated in the World of 7 Billion video challenge.  Students were to create a short video – up to 60 seconds – about human population growth.  The project was to highlight either sustaining water systems, ensuring economic opportunities or improving climate resiliency. All videos were required to include how population growth impacts the issue and at least one idea for a sustainable solution.

“In February, my students participated in a video challenge where they submitted a video with how global challenges impact the human population, and a sustainable solution,” said Ms. Hentz. “Ella won a gift card to Amazon. Thank you, Ella, for representing Hamilton County in such a positive way.” 
 
The World of 7 Billion contest is a project of the Population Education program, provider of K-12 classroom resources, and professional development opportunities. The organization offers the World of 7 Billion competition every school year.

We Must Love

I feel it too. It is easy to hate. Maybe we could try harder to love. Hate seeps into our bones, rules our integrity, and convinces us to forsake those we love. Hate is toxic. It spreads to our neighbors; people we once trusted. It spreads to our coworkers and friends; people who once trusted us. We lose sight of what truly matters. That is what we have in common now. Is ... (click for more)

I tend to believe many who voted ‘no’ would actually support ... (click for more)
