Congratulations Hugh Boyd Interact. They have done our District 5040 proud. They have now won the Rotary International Video contest twice in the last three years and placed in the top five in the intervening year.


From Doug Park Faculty Interact Advisor hello everyone
I wanted to thank everyone for their support with our Interact club's entry for the 2014/15 Rotary International video competition. After public choice voting, we were able to make the top 8, which then were officially judged using standardized criteria. We placed first...a true testament to the efforts of everyone involved. Rotary has provided my students with so many amazing opportunities...experiences that will shape them into fine young adults...leaders of the next generation.

Kyle, our grade 10 producer of the winning video, wanted to share a few words:
The Interact club of Hugh Boyd Secondary has won the international Interact video competition. The competition held 88 Interact clubs from 33 countries around the world. Judges of this competition were impressed by the vast variety of projects we have the ability to undertake. Although this is an absolutely amazing achievement for our club, we would not have been able to do it without our sponsoring Rotarians. You have given us immense opportunities to benefit our communities, and truly make a positive impact in the world. With your help, leadership and direction we are able to help and support a variety of projects. This amazing achievement is a direct representation of Rotary, and its support of our Interact club. It truly would have not been possible without you.

Thank you to everyone who voted, and supported our Interactors through their projects. Your mentorship and leadership is truly exemplified in the outcome of this video.
