On January 29, 2014 students at Tonopah Valley High School and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) members compete at Grand Canyon University (GCU) 3300 W Camelback Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85017 and win 1st Place on “Digital Video Production”. The teammates are Yamilet Cruz, Ivonne Solis, and John Rodriguez.
The team entered the competition because FBLA is an organization that required them to compete in a team event and it was attention grasping so they choose it. The FBLA organization is the one the selects the theme or idea of green environment project.
The requirements to enter the competition were that they must be an FBLA member, project to be under 4 minutes and to be about helping the environment and keeping the earth clean which they almost passed. Team-members must have C’s and above to be part of the events or competitions.
The team feels that they went beyond their goals by achieved first place with their video. They feel it was so fulfilling to know if you try hard you can accomplish great things. The team is looking forward to attend the state and national competitions. They just want to go all the way. It is impressive how this team was able to produce the project by using iPhone, MacBook Pro on iMovie software.
