FRANCONIA, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire tourism officials say a fourth grade class in Franconia will travel to the highest peak in the Northeast after winning this year’s “Class Act Video” grand prize.

The students in Garrett Ferguson’s class at the Lafayette Regional School learned of the award during a surprise announcement at the school on Thursday.

Their video - titled “Relive New Hampshire History” - depicts historic events and recreational and cultural activities.

Gov. Maggie Hassan congratulated the students via a videotaped presentation.

The video competition challenges fourth graders to create a 60-second video that illustrates how much fun it would be to visit the Granite State.

The winning class will go on a field trip to the Mount Washington Cog Railway - one of the state’s oldest tourist attractions.
