Oak Harbor High School students win contest | People and Places

Three Oak Harbor High School video students earned the GRAND PRIZE in a contest to create public service announcements for the Radio Television Digital News Foundation in Washington, D.C. As winners in the 2011 “REALLY?” contest, Jenna Chiaraluce, Xana Gilman and Denae McGaha will share the $1,000 prize and Chris Douthitt’s video classroom will receive an additional $1,000. The videos asked the question “Really?” in promoting the news literacy concepts promoted by the foundation.

“Your entry was the last one in and the judges agreed that it was worth the wait,” the foundation wrote in announcing the award. “They were impressed with the clever writing, clear visuals and the poise of the on-camera presenter.” View the winning entry at http://www.schooltube.comvideo/73a0b891bb804814bd04/PSA%20%22Riley%22 and see all the OHHS entries in the contest by going to and click on “videos.”
