This nicely done photomontage captures scenes from the 2009 SkillsUSA Georgia training and competition in graphic communications and advertising design, an event sponsored by the Printing & Imaging Association of Georgia (PIAG). It also earned a $100 cash prize for its producer, William Anthony, a high school student named the winner of PIAG’s YouTube contest to promote the competition. He’s a senior at Johnson High School in Gainesville, GA. Jessica Parker and Chelsea McIntyre, students at Effingham High School in Springfield, GA, received honorable mentions. Contestants were asked to produce a YouTube video of no more than four minutes using photos taken during the 2009 SkillsUSA Georgia training and competitions held April 16-18 at Heidelberg USA’s Kennesaw, GA, headquarters. Judging was based on number of views, YouTube rating, and input from a panel of industry representatives. All of the video entries can be seen here. To view the photos used to produce the videos, visit PIAG’s Flickr site. A PIAG press release reports the winners of the 2009 SkillsUSA Georgia competition. Congratulations to William, and respect to PIAG for its deft use of Web 2.0 media to publicize its programs. The association also publishes The Mentor, an education-focused blog.
