This past fall The NED Show invited students across the nation to participate in a special “Show Your NED Spirit” contest. In response, we received a delightful batch of videos that included cheers, raps, dances, and songs. After careful deliberation, we selected three ‘NED Spirit’ videos to publicly honor as our winners!


Drum roll please…

The NED Cup Song

Our Grand Prize goes to the students of Ellis Elementary in Logan, UT! Advised by Greg Cox, these students created an inspiring video that tells others the way to live life according to the NED principals. As part of their prize, these students won a NED item for every student in their school!


Congratulations to everyone who took part in creating this prize winning NED video! To discover why this NED song could easily be the best minute of your entire week, press play!

We’re also excited to recognize two more entries as Honorable Mentions!

Students of Kaechele Elementary in Glen Allen, VA created a three part rap that shares the message of NED.  This clever rap talks about seeing jobs through, cooperating, and all the fun that comes by doing our best. Congrats to Karen Shaia and her students for being selected as an Honorable Mention!

Our final Honorable Mention goes the impressive squad of students from Rice Elementary in Tyler, TX. These creative students formed a NED Cheer that sounds off the acronym in a way that will leave you cheering for NED for hours upon hours!Thanks to Diana Koop for submitting this cheer, and congrats to all the cheering students at Rice!
