HAMPTON COVE, AL (WAFF) -

A fourth grade class at Hampton Cove Elementary won a school contest for collecting the most Dimes for the Deployed.

Their prize was a chance to speak with Colonel Karl Kraus in Iraq through a video conference.

They asked questions about the upcoming holiday and even about life overseas.

Together, the school raised over $700.

That money will go toward assembling care packages for deployed service men and women - just in time for the holidays.
