The Jazz Singer

In November, 2004, three eighth grade students from Shackelford Junior High School in Arlington, Texas, set out to do a project on The Jazz Singer for National History Day. After much research, Jigna Patel, Jeanne Yu, and Erin Adams produced a ten minute film dealing with the beginning of talking pictures, centered around The Jazz Singer.

On February 19, 2005, they entered their film in the regional competition in Arlington, Texas, and were awarded first place. Moving on to the state competition, in Austin, Texas, in May, 2005, they received a "Most Outstanding Award" at that level.
