Both Cumberland County Middle School and Cumberland County High School participated in Cinemania, a 48 hour video competition. This is always a favorite for the students. Students have to write a script and prepare a video using the prompts provided by the Cinemania organizers. Cumberland Co Middle School Students made it to Level 2 judging. CCMS’ video was called “Where is that Shoe?” The high school Cinemania video was titled “Ol’Betsy.” The turnaround time for the video production and the components that must be included in the video makes for an interesting finished product. Students involved in this competition included—Xander Newell, Lacey Horton, Laric Horton, Zack Pruitt, Garrit Manthei, Joey Clarke and Ms. Tabetha Cooksey.
Other competitions during STLP State include--Joey Clarke and Laric Horton's participation in the Bench Challenge written assessment. Xander Newell competed in the Art on Demand live event. Anna Scott competed in the Photo on Demand live event and Garrit Manthei participated in Quick Recall. All of the students in attendance had the opportunity to compete, network, and decide what other ways they can become involved with STLP. Congratulations STLP students!
