East Ridge Middle School students win 3rd place in state media competition


Congratulations to East Ridge Middle School student producers John Berko and Sierra Keith, along with their sponsor, Kathy McTigue, for winning third place in the statewide Jim Harbin Student Media Festival, sponsored by the Florida Association for Media in Education!

Students from all over Lake County had the opportunity to participate at the district level based on their grade level and the category they wanted to represent, including comedy, drama, book trailer and others. District employees judged the submissions and chose six films to advance to the regional competition.

From there, three videos advanced to the state level and one, the “Prisoner B-3087” book trailer, won third place statewide!
