 Student Video Contest Finalists Announced

Five videos created by teams of local students have been selected as finalists in this year’s Innovative Video in Education SDCCU Redeye Competition.

The finalists are students from Canyon Crest Academy, Mission Middle School, Olive Peirce Middle School, Rancho Bernardo High School, and San Dieguito Academy. Click on the school names to watch the videos.

Seventeen teams of students from throughout San Diego County competed in the 36-hour video competition, creating 30-second commercials for San Diego County Credit Union (SDCCU). As part of the competition, students were prompted to create commercials for the credit union, which sponsored the competition.

A panel of judges will pick the winner from the five finalists.

The Redeye Competition is part of the bigger Innovative Video in Education, or iVIE, competition put on by the San Diego County Office of Education.

All five videos will be shown April 25 at the iVIE SDCCU Student Film Festival and Awards at Ultrastar Mission Valley. The winner will be announced at the awards.

Winning students will get $500 scholarships and their video will air on television.

The iVIE program is a powerful way for teachers to incorporate standards-based hands-on experiences into their lessons. The competition provides a chance for students to take ownership of their learning in a collaborative and rigorous environment.

The competition has drawn thousands of participating students in kindergarten through 12th grade from throughout the county over the last 14 years.

Videos are judged by media professionals and educators. Awards will be given in categories including math, science, language arts, documentary, and public service announcement.
