Congratulations are in order to the Nocona High School filmmakers!! Their animation “Zooport Group” earned the first place trophy for Texas Animation at the BAM film festival in Clute.

The awards were presented by Texas Speaker of the house Dennis Bonnen. Rep. Bonnen is a big supporter of education and the arts.
The “Zooport” team consisted of close to 20 students. Hannah Dyer, Corbin Paterson and Brennen were able to attend the festival along with sponsors Rob Norman, Todd Peterson and Stacey Dyer.
