School Projects Advance to State Competition

State festival to be held April 27.

On March 16 more than 285 students showcased their original media productions at the 2012 Fulton County Student Media Festival at Webb Bridge Middle School. Students entered media projects in several categories: animation, live action, interactive stills, sequential stills, web sites podcasts and photo essays. Entries also were categorized according to their purpose, such as story-telling, informational, documentary, instructional, persuasive/PSA or entertainment. 

When awarding scores, judges looked for excellence in production, writing, creativity, organization, technical quality, use of resources, relevance and impact. Those scoring 96 or higher were rated ‘Superior’ and now advance to the Georgia Student Media Festival, to be held April 27 at Clayton State University.
