Wittry, Wiggins place third in video contest, need views to win more

Radon videoAnother $300 for video seen by the most people

A pair of Greene County High School students in the video production class, Jacob Wittry and Spencer Wiggins, have already won cash for themselves and the high school art department, and are in the running for more money. The two entered a state-wide radon awareness video contest in January and were notified April 12 they won third place. 

They’ll split the $400 third place prize and the art department will receive an another $100.

Their third place finish also puts them into an additional contest, of “Most Views” which started April 12 and ends Monday, April 18.

The top 10 videos are entered in this contest to develop students’ marketing and outreach skills. Students will share a unique link to as many people as possible to spread radon awareness. The video with the most views will receive an additional $300.

The following is the link for the most views contest:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2Rvg18cgH4&feature=youtu.be

“Please share this link with friends and relatives to help these students win the ‘Most Views’ competition plus an additional $300,” said teachers Sarah Stott and Teresa Green.

The contest ends Monday April 18, at 9 am. The video is now unlisted on the ALA’s YouTube page so only views watched with this link will be counted. Each computer can only watch the video once; YouTube goes through and deletes views with the same IP address.
