Five thousand sea creatures, including sharks and stingrays, are finding a new home in Kansas City, as the new $15 million SEA LIFE Aquarium finally opens its doors tomorrow at Crown Center. There are 30 display tanks including a massive ocean tank with a walk through underwater tunnel where visitors are surrounded by fish and sharks. A Legoland Discovery Center is being built next door, but that won’t open for a few more weeks.
KCPT partnered with the new SEA LIFE Aquarium on a journalism contest where we invited high school broadcasting students to cover the arrival of the fish to their new home in Kansas City. Using the theme “The Fish Are Coming,” ten high school teams put together a two minute news account about the sea creatures arriving at the aquarium.
The winning high school team would have their report featured on The Local Show and we are pleased to announce the winner is…Park Hill South High School.
Winners of the SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium and KCPT Video Journalism Contest: Park Hill South High School and the reporting team of Sung Huh, Jacob Orlowski and Raymond Hadlock. Congratulations!
