West Virginia students have used their creativity and knowledge to win a video contest about the U.S. Constitution.

The contest, sponsored by the West Virginia Department of Education and the West Virginia State Bar, rewards students for the best creation of a 3-minute video with the theme, "We the People: The Constitution in Our Lives."

"Understanding the origins of the U.S. Constitution and the role it plays in our daily lives is something that benefits all students," said state Superintendent of Schools Jim Phares in a news release from the West Virginia Department of Education. "Students who participated in the contest developed a deep understanding of what the Constitution means today."

Sarah Law from Lewis County High School won first place and Austin Susman from George Washington High School in Kanawha County was second in the high school division.

In the middle school division, Lsaha Peak, a home-schooled student from Berkeley County, finished first, while Shamil Patel of Barboursville Middle School in Cabell County came in second.

First place winners receive $500 each. Second place finishers receive $250. Creators of the winning videos also are invited to attend the State Bar annual meeting on May 10 at Stonewall Jackson Resort.

Videos were judged on originality, creativity, adherence to the theme and quality. The contest was open to West Virginia residents in sixth through 12th grades.
