Oil City School Board members heard from the Oil City Middle School News team during Monday’s board meeting.
The team’s video won third place in the “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing” statewide contest.
The students worked together to tell the story about manufacturing in the community by producing a two and a half minute video. The Oil City team was paired with Matric Group for the competition.
The Oil City team took third place out of the 22 teams that competed in the event. The 22 entrants had all previously won at regional competitions in which 250 teams from across the state participated.
Rondinelli said the students used green screen and other technology to produce and edit the video.
Middle School principal Joy Zuck praised the students for their dedication and hard work.
The team consists of twin sisters Mackenzie and Makayla Canaan, Sarah Fox, Olivia Vorse, Carley Ames, Memphis Hulver and Shalyn Whittemore.
