HIGHLANDS RANCH – Students in Jim McClurg's film editing class at Rock Canyon High School recently used their talents to bring attention to public libraries and motivate kids to read.

Teams from the class produced four videos for submission to the Colorado Teen Video Challenge, sponsored by the Colorado State Library. The public service announcements were designed to promote the Collaborative Summer Library Program's 2015 summer reading theme, "Unmask!"

"Stolen Knowledge," produced by Max Orgill, Sam Hulsizer, and Dan Lindeen was named the winner of the challenge, and now appears on the Colorado State Library website. The video is available for promotional use by public libraries throughout the country.

The remaining three submissions from Rock Canyon were all named finalists. Each of the videos from RCHS will be included in an announcement sent to public libraries throughout the state. Producers of the winning video will receive $150, and all of the teams will receive a certificate signed by Governor Hickenlooper.

Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
