SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Teachers from two Manatee County Schools were surprised Wednesday morning as winners of the district’s ManaTeach video contest.

ManaTeach is an authentic campaign to “tell your story” using current media trends. Its purpose is to create a two-minute video giving the viewers a glimpse inside the classrooms and what goes on at Manatee County Schools.

So the music teacher and engineering teacher at Palma Sola Elementary got together to combine the two subjects.

“We wanted to create an atmosphere where kids are hands on and kids are completely immersed in their learning and that they could also learn instruments and engineering,” Chris Edwards, the music teacher, and Jackie Simpson, the engineering teacher, said.

The teachers won special prizes to Anna Maria Oyster Bar and Gettel Automotive.
