    Taking a video from concept to finished product in just 48 hours, the LaRue County High School Cinemania team earned first-place honors at the 2016 Kentucky Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP) State Championship Cinemania Contest.

    Students had already decided they wanted to produce a political satire video as they waited for Kentucky STLP to post the required video elements online. Once the elements were posted, the team had just two days to write a script, secure props and costumes, shoot and edit the video and submit their entry to the judges.
