AVP Students Claim Top 3 Places in Crime Stoppers Video ContestÂ
Cypress Ridge, Cypress Woods and Cypress Creek high school audio/video production (AVP) students earned the top three places in the 2022-2023 School Public Service Announcement Video Contest. Facilitated through a partnership between Crime Stoppers of Houston and the FBI Houston Citizens Academy Alumni, Cypress Ridge won for a third consecutive year, Cypress Woods earned second place for a second straight year and Cypress Creek placed third.
Students from the three teams and CFISD representatives were recognized during an awards ceremony on May 17 at Crime Stoppers of Houston.
AVP students in the greater Houston area were tasked to create a 45- to 60-second video educating viewers utilizing the prompt, “See Something, Say Something.”
“I am incredibly proud of my students for their win in the Houston Crimestoppers FBI Public Service Announcement Video Contest,” said Chris Spurgin, Cypress Ridge AVP teacher. “We are happy to place first in this contest for the third year in a row and represent Cy Ridge and CFISD. Their creativity, determination and commitment have brought my students this well-deserved victory.”
Videos were judged by their effectiveness and relevance, content, social media score and creativity, among other criteria. The social media score was calculated based on the number of YouTube likes and shares during thedesignated voting period, April 5-16.
“It was truly an honor for my students to secure the second-place position for the second consecutive year in the Houston Crimestoppers Video contest,” said Lori Andrade, Cypress Woods AVP teacher. “These contests play a crucial role in disseminating vital information to the public, making it an invaluable opportunity for my students to contribute toward creating a safer community.”
Said Cypress Creek AVP teacher Donna Allen: “This contest allows students to apply what they have learned in class and see a reward for their hard work. It allows the students an opportunity to showcase their talents on a large stage. Winning helps give the students the realization that they can do this and they will be noticed. Their work means something.”
