CPS partnered with the Chicago NATO Host Committee on the contest for CPS elementary and high school students. Students throughout the district competed to produce the most innovative videos welcoming NATO delegates to Chicago.


Winning videos will be featured on the Host Committee website, CPS.edu and distributed through social media. The Chicago NATO Host Committee donated the prizes including iPods for all the winners.  In addition one new 4G iPad will be awarded for a winner drawn at random, a $400 office supplies gift certificate to be shared by teachers of winning students and recognition by CPS and NATO leadership at Scammon on May 17th.


In addition, the work of many CPS students will be presented throughout the NATO summit and to delegates, including this postcard which features Navy Pier by CPS senior, Amrita S.



Congratulations to the students of Scammon Elementary and Dunbar, Whitney Young and Brooks high schools, and thanks for giving our NATO visitors a warm "Chicago welcome" they won't soon forget!
