Thanks to Splash Car Wash for sponsoring the event and to the five judges who took the time to review all 10 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 ninth edition of this contest next year.
