On Saturday March 8, students from Goochland High School competed in the Digital Video Production contest during the Technology Student Association event held at Glen Allen High School. Three teams from GHS entered the competition and were up against eight teams from other regional schools. Goochland High School made a big splash with 2nd, 3rd and 4th place winners. First place went to a team from Maggie Walker Governors School.
The video theme for the competition was Documentary. Our students worked hard to make interesting, dynamic videos about their chosen topics. A big thanks to the teachers, staff, students and community members who were willing to be filmed for the videos.
Tune into News 2 this week to watch the videos.
Congratulations to the winning teams.
