Grand Junction, CO – With more than 10,000 votes putting them over the top, Wingate Elementary School is the winner of the 2018 SHAPE Colorado Strong School Video Challenge! 

Physical education teachers from across the state submitted short videos of students being physically active at school to SHAPE Colorado, a statewide organization supporting physical education, recreation, health and dance professionals. The organization selected three finalists and posted the videos online, where anyone could vote for their favorite. 

“We won thanks to our students who voted, all of the physical education teachers, staff, and parents who voted, and everyone who saw the post (for voting) on our Facebook page and the district’s Facebook page,” said Lisa David, physical education teacher at Wingate.

Ms. David said she plans to spend the $1,000 prize that comes with winning the video challenge on volleyballs, Pickleball nets and paddles, and other gym equipment.
