Prize videographersFORT NELSON – Career and College Preparation students
at the Fort Nelson Campus were awarded first prize in a video competition hosted by the Northeast Environmental Action Team (NEAT) in May.

The Reel NEAT video contest was undertaken by students as part of a Social Studies unit. The students were required to make a movie about food production in the north. The video included a history of food production in northeastern British Columbia, from hunter-gatherers through to modern farming.

And, they proved to be very successful, as the nine-minute video, entitled Food Production – From Sustenance to Dependence, captured first place, and a $1,000 cash prize.

The NLC students then decided to use some of the prize money to plant an orchard of 125 fruit-bearing trees in an orphanage in Malawi.

The class also held a screening of the video as part of a luncheon to thank the community for its support of the project.
