More than 120 attended, including the seven finalist schools, a member of U.S. Congress, guests and the press. The Grand Prize went to Germany’s Immanuel-Kant-School Bremerhaven. For their video, "Stumbling", (named after so-called "stumbling stones") they researched the history of the Holocaust and depicted what they learned in a truly moving way.
Through various activities such as a New York City tour, UNESCO World Heritage Eco Learning Program at the Statue of Liberty, and visits to NBC and ABC - two major US TV networks - the students overcame language barriers to learn about each others' cultures.
