Scranton, PA (PRWEB) May 09, 2016

Scranton Products awarded Williamsburg Christian Academy (WCA) with $50,000 in Duralife plastic lockers and $7,500 in scholarships as first prize in the Duralife Unlocker Challenge national video competition on May 5, 2016 from 260 submissions nationally. Created by Scranton Products, a leading manufacturer of plastic toilet partitions and lockers, the video competition challenged students to think about inclusivity and diversity in their schools and everyday lives to produce a video entry. Through online voting open to the public, Williamsburg Christian Academy’s video was part of the TOP 100 videos selected to be judged by a judging panel. The second place winner Canby High School, of Canby, Oregon, was given $10,000 worth of Duralife lockers and $5,000 in scholarships and St. Ann Catholic School, in West Palm Beach, Florida, was awarded $5,000 worth of Duralife lockers and $2,500 in scholarships for third place.

The competition's theme, "Through the Locker Door," asked students to explain why inclusivity is important to a more positive school environment and how it applies later in life. In producing their videos, students chose to expand the theme to include topics ranging from diversity and race relations to bullying and students with special needs.

Williamsburg Christian Academy, Williamsburg, VA, serves students in pre-K through grade 12. Students at WCA created a video that looked literally “through the locker door” to demonstrate many aspects of inclusivity in a student’s life. The students used traditional videography as well as green screen technology and a drone to produce the winning video. Dr. Dianna Lindsay, head of the high school at Williamsburg Christian Academy, served as the adviser on the project.

"I am thrilled that our Leadership Class was able to create a national award winning video that braided together research, images, and a story that not only accurately addresses the mission of our school but that was also well received by the judges!" commented Lindsay.
