Four Dimboola Memorial Secondary College year nine students will fly to Sydney to attend the eStory awards ceremony after placing as national finalists for the second year running.
Andrew King, Hadassah Schembri, Hayley Crawley and Taylah Ryen created a short video about German settlement in the local area, fulfilling the criteria of using a second language that is learnt at school.
"We spent an afternoon driving around the area to photograph relevant landmarks before starting the editing process," Andrew said. "The project had several aspects, including research, translating from English to German, and the production of the video."
"We used the video camera and software package we won last year as well as the schools iPads, Mac and Windows computers, interactive whiteboards and green-screen to produce the final video," he said.
"We were on a tight schedule, but we put in lunchtimes and after school to get it completed on time."
The competition, hosted by the New South Wales Department of Education and Communities, will host its awards ceremony at the Sydney Opera House. The four will fly to Sydney on November 26 with their German teacher Sally Klinge.
