Two sophomores at St. Paul’s Academy in Bellingham have won a video contest for their short about the effects of PCBs on the health of Puget Sound.
Ali Anders and Melanie Bazlan created the nearly two-minute video for the contest put on by Facing the Future in Seattle. Titled “A World Without Whales,” the video shows people around Bellingham holding handwritten signs that detail the threat, and some of the solutions to the problem.
Their entry was one of three selected to receive the contest’s top prize of $300 and an HD Flip video camera, said Karl Frank, their science teacher.
He goes on to say that the video is “one of the best efforts I’ve seen from students in my ten years of teaching.”
