Floyd College & Career Academy has won honorable mention in this year’s Georgia School Boards Association’s student video contest. The lead student is Kylie Itson and sponsoring faculty member is Leah Lynn. In partnership with the Georgia Vision Project’s Spark campaign; GSBA sponsors a student video contest for public high school students all over the state. This year’s theme was “Community Support: What does it look like?” The GSBA Awards committee, who critiqued the videos on how well they addressed the topic, as well as the quality of the production and the creativity of the video, did the judging. The videos were all one minute or less. No professional assistance was provided to produce the video. The format of the video was left up to the students (commercial, news broadcast, music video, etc.) There were 35 videos submitted for the contest this year. Other winners in the competition include Loganville High School, Walton County (first place); North College & Career Academy, Carroll County (second place); Dade County High School (third place).
