Newton College & Career Academy (NCCA) students Samantha Impeartrice, Courtney Cammarata, Caitlin Bloodworth, and Josiah Sloan teamed up to win an Honorable Mention in the White House Second Annual Student Film Festival Competition with their video, “The Boy Scouts of America (Giving Back).”

The theme for this year’s contest was, “The Impact of Giving Back.” Students were asked to create short films about the Impact of Giving Back, and to show what service meant to them. Overall, more than 1,500 student films were submitted from students around the world.

“We were very excited to learn that one of our submissions won an Honorable Mention at the White House Student Film Festival Competition,” said Ms. Verda Watson, Audio-Video Technology and Film (AVTF), Instructor at the Newton College and Career Academy. “Sam, Courtney, Caitlin, and Josiah worked very hard on their film and that showed in the final product. It was a high quality video that they can be very proud of. Three of the four students are juniors so they will come back next year and hopefully participate in this contest again. With that said, I can’t wait to see what they produce next year!”
