Sen. Lesser Meets With C-SPAN Documentary Competition Participants at Baird Middle School
Sen. Eric P. Lesser visited Baird Middle School in Ludlow Dec. 7, to be interviewed by students are participating in C-SPAN'S Annual Student Video Documentary Competition. “The students I met through this video project impressed me not only with their well-researched questions, but also with their enthusiasm for civic engagement, both at the local and national level,” Sen. Lesser said. “As a state legislator I’m confident that our Commonwealth’s future is in good hands.”
The annual C-SPAN competition encourages students to think critically about issues that affect their communities and country. Last year, Baird students received Honorable mention in the National Competition for their video titled “Common Core,” about the education policies that affect Common Core standards.
