A Lewis County High School student has used her creativity and knowledge to win a West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) and West Virginia State Bar contest about the U.S. Constitution.

The contest encouraged students to make a three-minute video with the theme "We the People: The Constitution in Our Lives".

Sarah Law, of Lewis County, won first place and Austin Susman of George Washington High School in Kanawha County won second place in the high school division. Lsaha Peak, a home-schooled student from Berkeley County, finished first in the middle school division and Shamil Patel of Barboursville Middle School in Cabell County earned second place.

First place winners receive $500 each, according to a news release from the WVDE. Second place finishers receive $250 each. Creators of the winning videos are invited to attend the State Bar annual meeting on May 10 at Stonewall Jackson Resort.

Law was a 2012 EQT Students of Excellence recipient which will provide her with a full-ride scholarship to a college of her choosing. You can see her winning video submission here.
