Middlebrook students win film competition awards

Four Middlebrook TV Production Club students won awards for their films during Public Access Television’s Annual Film Competition.

Sixth grader Aidan Thornbrough won second place in the public service announcement category for his Technology Use in the Classroom piece.

In the documentary category, seventh grader Ryan Siegel’s School Safety film won third place.

Sixth graders Joseph Eustace and Harrison Forland took first place in the community/school story category for their King Tut’s Museum production.

The Middlebrook TV Production Club is one of Middlebrook’s newest clubs, advised by eighth grade social studies teacher Maria Lateef, who teaches club members basic media skills and how to edit videos using computer software.

“The goal of the club is to really build skills in the kids and produce shows to share what’s going on in our school with other teachers, the parents and the community,” Lateef told The Bulletin in January.

Lateef said the club is “amazing and a great way to communicate with parents and the community.”

“The kids put a lot of work into it and it’s fun,” she said, “and it shows everybody what’s going on and the great things that we do in our district.”
