On Monday, Hamilton 5th graders pitched their solutions to judges from GMB, the Hamilton Board of Education, and Hamilton Community Schools Administration answering the driving question of, "How can we make Hamilton elementary playgrounds safe, fun and inclusive?"

Winning presentations were selected from each homeroom and then each winning presentation "pitched off" against the other class winners in front of the entire Hamilton 5th grade.

Congrats to the following Homeroom Class Winning teams and the top three overall! Great work, 5th graders; you amazed us with our presentation skills and ideas!
