On Monday the WIAA released its winners of its fourth annual Public Service Announcement Video Contest, with Sheboygan North students Paul Theodoroff, Morgan Ross and Travis Waibel recieving an honorable mention for their video “Student-Athletes.”
The video “Stronger As We Go” submitted by Garrison Asma of Westosha Central High School was the winner of the contest, which offers a student’s perspective of the benefits of interscholastic athletics through membership in the WIAA.
The video is on YouTube at http://youtu.be/O5rDGuyvKU0 or on the WIAA website at: http://www.wiaawi.org/News/SchoolVideoContest.aspx.
Other videos receiving honorable mentions were “Play Like Champions” created by Vince Pintarro, Hunter Hart, Coty Gular and Connor Shepherd of Tomah High School; “Strength of the Pack” by Kaela Huber of Ashland High School; and “Worth It” by Kendall Motzkus and Tyler Passineau of West Bend East/West High Schools.
The videos were judged based on creativity, quality, ability to inspire and a number of other categories. The contest involves interested students in any academic discipline to partner for a multi-media experience detailing the relationship the WIAA has with member schools, their students, their communities and fans of high school athletics. Members of the WIAA Executive Staff and PlayOn! Sports evaluated and judged the contest. All member schools were permitted to enter one or more videos in the contest.
