JACKSON TWP — Seneca Valley students in Dan McKosky’s video production classes brought home three awards from Robert Morris University’s annual Digital Media Arts Consortium student video festival in early April.
Senior Erin Vargo won in the documentary category for her film “The Loss of Labor Day,” which is about a helicopter crash in 1978.
Matt Ditmore, sophomore, won in the video as art category for his poetic film “Steel Forests,” which juxtaposes old industrial Pittsburgh with vibrant scenes from nature.
The Seneca Says crew won in the school announcements category for the second year in a row.
More than 500 students from Western Pennsylvania participated in the contest.
This event provides students with the ability to interact with other students and see clips from productions from across the region.
Additionally, the event gives students a chance to compare their skills and achievements to their peers, while also providing ideas for upcoming shows and projects.
