Local students create a video in order to educate other kids


Changes to school lunches have drawn complaints from some kids in Hannibal but for others, it's lead to a research project and a lesson in teamwork.


Students from Hannibal High School and 5th graders in the LEAP program are making a movie on the positive impacts of the changes and sending a message to their fellow students.

Tracy Murphy, an elementary LEAP teacher, says it's great the kids are learning why it's important to have a more healthy life style.


"And if they learn these things now and they're given the choice here in school for educating them correctly about the choices they can make to promote a healthy life style then they're going to be hopefully more successful and healthier adults in the future," said Tracy Murphy.

The final movie will be shown at the February school board meeting.
