The digital filmmaking class at Mingus Union High School has ramped things up over the past couple of years.
To prove that investing in expanding the class has paid off, students in the program recently swept a video contest held by MATForce, a regional organization that works to combat substance abuse in Yavapai County.
Students Bailey Stork, Nick Adams, Eric Wilson and Nolan Powell split first place for their work along with $300 in prize money with MUHS student Cesar Lara.
In second came students Nicholas Contreras, Cameron Bloniarz, Zach Kline, Brad Priser, Nate Johnes, Jordan May, Xavier Gonzales with the $200 prize.
