MNTC Students Win Oklahoma Department of Transportation “End Litter” Video Contest

Moore Norman Technology Center Digital Cinema and TV Production adult students Jesse Raines, Ly Stephenson-Krupowics, and Danie Chevere were celebrated on campus today for winning the Oklahoma Department of Transportation End Litter Video Contest. Their winning video titled “Leave No Trace” is featured now on the KOB website, and the students were presented with a $1250 prize. 

Keep Oklahoma Beautiful encourages high school and college students to take action in the fight against litter and illegal dumping in our state. The winning video highlighted the negative impact of little on Oklahoma’s economy, tourism rates, and reputation – showing some of Oklahoma’s most beautiful landscapes disrupted by trash. It encouraged viewers to take action against littering in our state by calling 1-888-5-LITTER. 

“I’m extremely proud of all my students and their accomplishments in this project,” said Digital Cinema and TV Production Instructor Ben Hlavaty. “It was amazing that all the submitted entries were finalist, and winning the college division was thrilling.” 

MNTC would also like to congratulate all of the high-school finalists from the Moore and Norman Public School Systems for their entries titled: “A Trash Shoot” ; “Beautiful Blue Skies of Oklahoma” ; “KOB Crackdown” ; “Learning with Trashy” ; “Make Peace! Not Trash!” ; and “Trash Gazing.” 

College entry winners Jesse, Ly, and Dani also submitted a finalist entry titled “Canny Speaks Up.” Click here to watch the winning video, and all other high school and college finalist submissions.
