A Hilton elementary school is a finalist in an international online video contest. Quest Elementary School needs your votes for a chance at $60,000 in prizes.

Quest is one of 100 schools in the contest that rewards schools for their work applying technology, content and creativity.

This contest has $200,000 in prizes for the top six schools.

Quest needs votes to move on to the final phase.

"These kids are digital natives; they grow up with technology and it is imbedded in their lives and as educators we have to help them learn how to refine their skills and use it to the best of their ability," said Stephanie Harney, Quest Elementary.

Technology is everywhere; kids are reading ebooks, they are using electronic devices in the classroom. Right now, we are hoping to get this grant and offer the best in technology so they can have their best experience at school."

You can vote once a day until March 18th at Follett Challenge. Winners will be notified April 5th.
