ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A sixth grade class in the Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) Program at West Middle School has won second place in a national contest.

For winning second place, the class will receive a research-grade microscope for the classroom.

Students were challenged to create a music video using the song "Happy" by Pharell Williams with the theme "Why does science make you happy?"

The students rewrote the lyrics to the song and created a story board for the video. Their video can be watched at the attached link.

We're told the class should be receiving the microscope within the next week or so.
