The i5 Digital Video Competition Best Storytelling Award goes to…South Fayette Middle School!

i5 Digital Video Competition

The Carnegie Science Center rolled out the red carpet for local middle and high school students last Thursday, April 23rd. The OMNIMAX Theater set the stage for the i5 Digital Video Competition Awards to celebrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education.

Of course, STEM education is very near and dear to our hearts and our industry, so when middle school students from the South Fayette School District wanted to showcase Inventionland in their i5 Digital Video Competition entry, we were happy to help however we could!

As we’ve previously reported, South Fayette Middle School students chose to showcase what STEM means to them by spending a day shooting a short film at Inventionland. The film, “STEM in my Future,” featured interviews with various Inventionland employees and shots from around our creative design facility.

Not only were we impressed with their finished product, but so were the judges from the Carnegie Science Center. In the school’s first year participating in the competition, South Fayette Middle School students won the Best Storytelling Award!

Under the supervision of their teachers, the students shot their footage at Inventionland, then edited and finalized their video in their middle school media lab. They both recognized and credited Inventionland and our employees for “everlasting support to the South Fayette School District.”

In total, over 120 students entered over 55 videos in this year’s i5 Digital Video Competition. They represented more than 25 regional school districts or organizations.

Congratulations to the entire South Fayette School District on taking home this year’s i5 Digital Video Competition’s Best Storytelling Award! We’re so excited that we could be a part of your success!
