Terra Vista trio qualify for state
Terra Vista Middle School students Cole Claborn, Adilyn Love and Caroline Hicks will see their finished video project judged at the state level.
The trio put together a short minute-and-a-half video on “the power of public schools” and the team was selected as one of six statefinalists in the 2017 Celebrate Texas Public Schools (CTPS) video contest.
The students were surprised when they got the news that their team was selected in the middle school division of the contest, which ishosted by the Texas Public School Relations Association.
“They were shocked but they were really excited,” said Alexe’ Buschman, a Terra Vista broadcast media and digital design teacher. “Theywere just as excited to be district winners. That was kind of their goal — to win for Frenship. … Once they did that they were happy, butonce they heard they were going to state they were really excited.”
According to its website, the association asked students to work with campus staff to produce a video with a positive message aboutpublic schools.
The FISD website reads: “Every day in every city and town across the state of Texas, public educators are changing the lives of students inpowerful ways,” said Nicole Mansell, the 2017 CTPS Chair. “Thank you for sharing that message.”
The state winners will be announced by grade at the 2017 Texas School Public Relations Associations Annual Conference at the GalvestonIsland Convention Center, winners in each category being awarded $1,250
“I think it is really fun to see them make a video that is going to be aired outside of Terra Vista,” Buschman said. “And for it to go somewhere is always fun. This is Terra Vista’s fourth year to participate in the contest and this is the second year our video has gone to state.”
