Local School Wins National Contest

It's quite an honor for a Duplin County elementary school.

Last month we told you how Brett Lanier's fifth grade class at Chinquapin Elementary school was in the running to win $25,000 in technology in a national video contest.

Students submitted the video in the competition sponsored by e-instruction.

Wednesday came word the class won that $25,000 technology makeover plus a $1,000 check for the school and a party for the school.

More than 290 schools from across the country participated.
