Video: Last regular season basketball games ever to be played at Chelsea High

Coming up in the Sunday Valley News: A feature story on the last regular season basketball games to ever be played in Chelsea High, which will be closed next year as part of an Act 46 merger with Tunbridge. On Thursday night, Chelsea boys and girls both beat Whitchester, which will also dissolve next year when those high school students are sent to South Royalton. (The teams still have a shot at the playoffs.)

We are seeking paid participants for a Social Media Research Study on Online Consumption.

Participants must be Pinterest users in one of the following categories related to marital status:

  • First time engaged females.
  • First time engaged males.
  • Females in a committed relationship, but who are not engaged, not married and have never been married.
  • Females who are single, and not in a committed relationship or engaged and have never been married.

The study is being run at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H.: day, evening, and weekend slots are available. The study will last one hour.

During this study, the participant must be willing to:

  1. complete some questionnaires,
  2. complete some online tasks on Pinterest,
  3. wear a sensor cap that records the participant’s brain waves,
  4. wear a small wristband to record physiological responses such as heart rate and skin conductance (sweat).

Participants will be compensated for their time.

Contact Kimberly.R.Clark@dartmouth.edu today to learn more and to book your one-hour time slot.
