Shaken & Stirred – a positive message wins college video contest
The University of Vermont’s Health Center has announced the winners of what will hopefully be an annual video contest. Students finished the sentence “The life I live looks like…” through videos that showcase living a fun life without excessive alcohol use. I was the student voice on the judging panel and while every entry was interesting, creative, and note-worthy in their own right, I am especially excited to share the Grand Prize winning entry. “The Real Groovy UV” is a hip-hop/rap music video by a group of students. There’s a nasty technical issue where the video is frozen and the audio is just a lot of scratchy noise (not the fault of the contestants) from :19 to :54, so skip ahead of that.
These guys have some serious marketing talent. As a soon to be UVM alum, I can say it paints a pretty accurate picture. Can’t decide where to go to college? Ch-ch-check this out.
