The Mahoning County Career and Technical Center is hosting its first Student Digital Video Contest for junior high and high school students throughout Mahoning County now through March 5.
The video contest is open to students in grades seven through 12 and challenges participants to create a two- to four-minute-long video about creativity and what inspires them to be creative. This marks the first time MCCTC has hosted a video competition for students.
"The video competition is a community outreach project that allows us to engage with students at the home school level and to provide them with an avenue for their creativity," contest organizer and MCCTC Vice Principal Ralph Sandy said.
The competition includes a seventh- and eigth-grade division and a ninth- through 12th-grade division with prizes awarded for first through fourth place in each division. First place in each division will receive a $250 gift card. A portion of the monies for this year's prizes has been donated by Engler and Associates.
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held at 6 p.m. March 26 at MCCTC's Joyce E. Brooks Conference Center. Winners must be present to claim their award.
All entries must be uploaded to YouTube by midnight March 5. For entry forms and more contest details, visit www.mahoningctc.com, enter the high school page and click on the news tab. All entries should be submitted via email to Ralph.Sandy@MahoningCTC.com.
