Posted: March 29, 2010
CHARLESTON, W.Va. – West Virginia high school students have until April 1 to create a three-minute video that could win them as much as $1,000 and a trip to The Greenbrier resort.

The West Virginia State Bar and the West Virginia Department of Education have partnered in the video contest. Participants are asked to create a “Righting a Wrong” video about a wrong that they would make right, an injustice they would correct, or something that they would remedy within the judicial system.
The videos will be placed on YouTube. First place receives $1,000, while second place wins $500 and third place gets $250.
The contest is open to West Virginia public school students in grades 9 through 12. It gives participants the chance to create a video about a wrong that they would right, an injustice they would correct, or something that they would remedy within the judicial system.
The creator of the winning video also will receive basic accommodations at The Greenbrier for the awards presentation during The West Virginia State Bar’s Annual Meeting in May.
Videos will be judge based on originality, creativity, adherence to the theme and overall quality. Entries must include a parental permission form for those under age of 18. Students interested in entering the contest can download an application and other forms as well as rules at http://wvde.state.wv.us/wvstatebar.
