In 2018, LWV - Lynchburg started a new initiative with local high schools: a video contest. Students had to submit an original video to the project. Videos were made on the theme of the importance of voting.
2018 Contest Winners
Kristyana Kelly, E.C. Glass High
The judges appreciated the strong impact of the cheery "Hello Virginia" greeting; the big, clear, colorful, varied graphics; the straight-forward message, the pacing and the ease of following along. The video was easy to remember.
2018 Runner up
Micayla Bignon , E.C. Glass High
The judges appreciated the flow of Micayla's entry, the colorful and varied graphics, a clear message and the inclusion of diverse groups (old, young, African American and Caucasian, Muslims, etc.). Diversity matters! They appreciated the choice of words: "Lift your voice" and the specific mention of healthcare, civic rights and education as voting concerns.
