April 7, 2021—The Bridgeland High School and Cypress Creek High School audio/video production programs won first and second place, respectively, in the high school division of the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Student Video Contest.
The annual contest asked students to make videos that focused on overcoming challenges and pushing past adversity that also showcased the strength, resilience and success of Texas public schools. The contest was open to all Texas public schools and winners were selected in the elementary, middle and high school divisions.
“Winning the TASB Student Video Contest has been the most joyful and exciting experience for us this school year,” said Joe McKinney, Bridgeland audio/video production teacher. “After getting hit with the pandemic, we weren’t sure if we could safely get the hands-on training necessary to produce high-quality content. Fortunately, our district and campus created safety guidelines and processes that allowed us to move forward confidently. I am extremely proud of my students and look forward to them creating heartfelt content this upcoming school year that will continue to encourage Bridgeland, CFISD and Houston to push through all hardships and to win the day!”
The Cypress Creek High School audio/video production program won second place in the high school division of the Texas Association of School Boards Student Video Contest. Cypress Creek will receive a $2,500 second-place prize.
Bridgeland will receive a $5,000 first-place prize, while Cypress Creek will receive a $2,500 second-place prize.
“It is such an honor for Cypress Creek High School to represent not only CFISD and its community but all public schools,” said Donna Allen, Cypress Creek audio/video production teacher. “My students work hard every day to represent our school and district showcasing the top of the line education they receive. It means the world to us that we were able to showcase our talents as well as represent our school, district, community and public schools. We could have not achieved this honor without the help of everyone at Cypress Creek, the parents and the community.”
