The Woodcraft Rangers’ NVISION programs held their Winter Jam Dance Competition at Plainview Elementary in Tujunga on Saturday, Dec. 6. The event saw a full house of parents, family members and principals from several schools. The Winter Jam Dance Competition, which was streamed live online to hundreds of spectators, allowed the viewers to engage with the competition by casting a vote for the People’s Choice Award. Votes came in from as far away as Mexico and Canada. Woodcraft Rangers holds events such as the Winter Jam to engage the community, their partners and to showcase the students’ hard work.
The three guest judges grappled with making difficult decisions, finally presenting awards to the top performing schools based on overall scores. An online vote was also conducted as nearly a thousand ballots were recorded to award Sunland Elementary with the People’s Choice Award.
“It is great that Woodcraft Rangers can broadcast an amazing performance like this,” said one parent. “I have family in Canada and they were able to see my daughter and her school perform.”
Plainview Elementary Principal Kenneth Johnson said, “It was an honor to be a guest judge and see the amazing work [the students] have done.”
Spirit Jam is up next and will feature over 40 schools in attendance and thousands of parents are expected to support the event.
