The Albany / Clinton County Chamber of Commerce sponsored the iHeart Clinton County Video Contest with 6th grade students at Clinton County Middle School. Students were challenged to create a video celebrating Clinton County that would make someone want to visit, using video, photos, music, and narration. Participants chose to work independently, with a partner, or in a group. Thanks to Mrs. Danielle Hicks for facilitating the contest in her class at CCMS. Fifteen finalists were selected and those videos were premiered before a live audience on Monday, May 6th at Albany First Baptist Church.
