Nearly 100 people packed the screening room in the Arts and Communications Building at the University of La Verne for the showing of the best videos in the 3rd Annual My Home Town Video Contest.

The contest encourages local high school students to make a video of five minutes or less about their hometowns. This year’s contest received more than 30 entries from 15 high schools.

“We have three goals for the contest,” said Don Pollock, My Home Town Contest director and professor of communications at La Verne.  “We want to encourage local high school filmmakers, to promote localism. We also want the students to look for great stories to tell in their own back yards. And, we want to promote the Communications Department and the University of La Verne.”

The best dozen videos each year are shown on the big screen in the film screening room at the university and compiled into a single DVD that is sent to public access TV stations across the country.

The top three entries won prizes of video equipment: headphones, donated by Broadcast Supply worldwide, and a tripod and camera donated by Markertek.

A reception, with lively conversation, followed the screening.

My Home Town is sponsored by the University of La Verne Communications Department, LVTV-3 La Verne Community Television, and KWST, San Dimas Community Television.

The University of La Verne marketing department provides funding to put on the My Home Town contest.
