Here's what the winners had to say about their participation in NOCTI's Video Contest:
“My students were both shocked and excited to hear that their NOCTI video had placed first in the competition. They thought the other videos were very strong, but maybe theirs had really nailed the “rock” theme while highlighting all eleven of our school's technical majors. It dovetailed nicely with our unit on Ad Campaigns and Storytelling.
With the prize money, the students were hoping to take a field trip to a site that would enhance their educational experience: perhaps the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens or a printing plant that images, prints, binds, and distributes weekly news magazines.” -Karen Waller – Visual & Graphic Design Instructor, Bergen County Technical High School
“Our students look forward to this contest each year! It gives them an opportunity to apply their skills and be creative in a competitive environment. As a teacher, it's a great practical project to give students to challenge them both technically and creatively.” -James Del Conte – Communication Media Technology Instructor, Berks Career & Technology Center
“I plan on saving up money so that I can purchase all of my camera equipment, so I'll be investing the prize money in that.” -Cassandra Green – Advanced AV student, Kingwood High School

NOCTI is excited to announce its 2019 Video Contest theme: America's Future Workforce!
Encourage your students to consider creating a video based on the theme, either on their own or with a group of classmates. Students should use their imagination to create a video that creatively, cleverly, and concisely highlights ways in which CTE impacts America's Future Workforce.
We look forward to the 2019 Video Contest submissions. Get your students brainstorming their ideas for America’s Future Workforce now, so that when the 2018/19 school year starts, this contest can be included as part of your curriculum!
