Students started back in November writing, shooting, and editing their own interpretations of how to send a powerful message about underage drinking and driving. Prize money totaled $21,000. However, the money doesn't go to the students on the winning team. Instead, it's deposited in the winning school's "media" department account.
A number of videos produced by Phoenix high schools were trimmed down to eight "video" finalists and five "audio" finalists. The winning schools were:
1st Place, South Mountain High School - $5,000 (second year in a row) 2nd Place, Metro Tech High School - $4,000 3rd Place, Metro Arts Institute - $3,000
Mountain Pointe - $500 Camelback - $500 Shadow Mountain - $500 Sandra Day O'Connor - $500 Desert Vista - $500
1st Place, Shadow Mountain High School - $3,000 2nd Place, South Mountain High School - $2,000 3rd Place, Camelback High School - $1,000
Metro Arts Institute - $300 Mountain Pointe - $300
The top three videos will be entered in the Rocky Mountain Emmy's competition at NATAS. South Mountain's first place video will show in the Harkins Theatres in Phoenix for a month, prior to the feature presentations. There is the potential for over 275,000 views.
