It is Ridgefield’s third win and first since going back to back in 2013-14.
The Lair tied with New Canaan for the best video. Its one point for finishing in fifth place in the voting was the difference.

Because of the exception quality of the videos, we had four judges. Ridgefield and New Canaan, which each got two first-place votes, tied for best video. Trumbull was third and Wilton and Greenwich tied for fourth. Westhill also received a third-place vote.
Thanks to Splash Car Wash for sponsoring the event and to the judges who took the time to review all nine videos.
Most of all, thanks to all the schools that competed. It was a lot of fun and it added further evidence that there is a lot of loyal school spirit in the FCIAC, not to mention many talented and creative videographers.
We look forward to holding the 10th edition of this contest next year.
