Over the summer, four students from Apple Valley High School’s Computer and Media Pathway (CAMP) program were honored with awards at the California Student Media Festival.

Now at its 50th year, the California Student Media Festival is the nation’s oldest student media festival. The Festival exists to celebrate the amazing media and multimedia projects produced by California’s students and teachers, and rewards their successful class work at an awards ceremony each June. The festival showcases what can be accomplished when talented students and dedicated teachers work together to integrate media and multimedia into education.

CAMP students who participated were expected to create a video highlighting a school subject and to showcase what they have learned. The video was required to be entirely original and could not include any copyright materials.

The award ceremony was held on June 11, 2016 at the Zipper Concert Hall at the Colburn School of Los Angeles. In addition to receiving a plaque to showcase the accomplishments, teachers of all winning entrants received a one-year membership to CUE and teachers of overall winners were given a cash prize and one complimentary registration to the CUE 2017 National Conference in Palm Sprin

Congratulations to the following CAMP students:

·       Laeni Castaneda and Gabriel Cacace
Best Use of Media and Art: “Escape” 

·       Jelly Contreras and Gabriel Lopez
Secondary English/Language Arts Category: “Sparks”
