This year, the EagleVision class received multiple awards from ILPC (Interscholastic League Press Conference), TAJE (Texas Association of Journalism Educators), the BBB (Better Business Bureau), and the Christian Online Film Festival. They were honored for their documentaries, films, and broadcasts.

“This group is the epitome of the success that can be found in project-based learning,” EagleVision teacher Neda Morrow said. “And I love to see them honored for their hard work.”

In ILPC, junior Lili Miller and Kylie Gorman won third place in documentary. Additionally, sophomores Sydney Hines and Bailey Park received an honorable mention for their documentary.

“It took a lot of time and effort,” Hines said. “But it was worth it once we got all of our awards back.”

For TAJE, Park and Miller received a best of the best award and a superior rating. Hines and Park also received a superior rating, which is the highest rating possible.

“I’m just really proud of all of our hard work this year,” Miller said. “We worked on these films for so long and I’m glad we are getting recognition.”

In the Christian Online Film Festival, Sydney and Kylie received both Best Student Film and Best Documentary. Trinity, Ben, Xander, and Taylor all received first place in the 2023 student video contest and will split the $500. 

“A lot of work goes into making films,” Morrow said. “They have to both plan and execute someone’s creative vision, which is always hard”

The Eaglevision class won $2000 for the activity account because of their placement in the student video contest. The class was interviewed by KLTV on Friday.

“Groups like this have to go through a lot of failures and hardships before they achieve success,” Morrow said. “And I think that’s the best learning experience of all.”
