Riverton High School Student Film Team Wins Second Place at STN National Convention

A student film team from Riverton High School returned from the Student Television Network (STN) annual national convention with an impressive second-place award in the Silent Film competition. The convention, the largest high school film/broadcast group in the nation, was attended by more than 3,000 students nationwide. It was the first year that Riverton High School participated in the convention, and they brought three student teams who competed in the Short Film, Music Video, and Silent Film competitions.

Each team was given six hours to plan, film, edit, and produce a film responding to a specific prompt. Despite the intense time pressure, each team did very well. However, the Silent Film team stood out, producing a one-minute silent film that responded to the prompt “Walking on Cloud Nine” and won second place in their division.

Riverton High School teacher Joshua Luchs, who accompanied the students to the convention, said, “Getting second in one of our categories was a big deal for us. STN’s annual convention is highly competitive, with hundreds of video production programs nationwide attending. We are incredibly proud of our students and their achievement, and we intend to continue competing in subsequent years.”

Congratulations to Riverton High School’s Film students on their impressive achievement! Their success is a testament to the students and their teachers’ hard work, talent, and dedication.
