Three Arrow Heights Elementary School students — Madison Howard, Megan Cottingham, and Samantha Legebokow, also known as Ele3ments — are finalists in the Off the Rails Railroad Safety Contest.

The girls entered a unique video they produced, called Stay Off The Tracks, in the contest in December. Their unique video promoting railway safety features the three girls singing a Justin Bieber tune acapella, with a creative railway twist.

Stay Off the Tracks was one of the 15 finalists picked out of 60 contestants in their category; English Multimedia. The next phase of this competition is voting for the girls’ video. Should they win, the girls will receive $2000 for their school. Second place winners will receive $500 for their school.
