Byrd M.S. wins national awards

Byrd Middle School recently was recognized nationally as the winner of two 21st century contests.

A video created by the school’s librarians and HCPS-TV, which documented the school’s participation in the first-ever national Digital Learning Day Feb. 1, was selected as the best middle school impact video submission in the nation by the Alliance for Excellent Education, which organized the day. More than 10,000 teachers and 1.5 million students in 37 states participated in Digital Learning Day, designed to highlight innovative teaching and learning techniques.

Byrd also won a national contest at the middle school level sponsored by the American Association of School Librarians, which featured a theme of “You Belong @ Your School Library.” The video was created by the school’s librarians, led by Shannon Hyman, and sixth-graders Ajitha Balasubramanian, Mary Caroline Brooks, Alyssa McCandlish, Hailey Reid, Luke McKenney and Tony Suber.
