Student wins video contest with anti-bullying PSA

Photo of Jessie BrandmeierJessie Brandmeier, 11th grade student at DeForest Area High School, recently won third place in the 2012 WASB Student Video Contest for a video she produced, entitled, “Say Something.”

The video contest, sponsored by the Wisconsin Association of School Boards, in cooperation with the Wisconsin Educational Media Technology Association, gives students an opportunity to create creative, thought-provoking videos individually, in a small group or as a class project. Brandmeier placed in the high school individual category.  According to WASB, “To participate in the contest, students submit a video—no longer than 4 minutes—that states how you or your generation will impact the world. The generation in school today has the potential to make a substantial impact on tomorrow’s world as they use and build upon the technologies of today. What will that impact be?”

Videos were judged on how well students addressed the topic. The quality of the production of the video as well as the depth of thought and creativity of the video was also taken into consideration. No professional assistance can be provided to produce the video.

Jessie’s winning video was displayed at the 2012 State Education Convention January 18-20 in Milwaukee and she received a $50 prize, courtesy of Marcus Hotels and Resorts.
