PLYMOUTH, WI (WHBL) - Some of Sheboygan County’s best student video makers were recognized last evening for helping to spread the word about not doing drugs. The Sheboygan County Service Providers put on the contest for middle and high school students to create an up to two minute video to showcase the dangers of drug use.
Sheboygan Police Captain Jim Veeser said the quality of the entries were impressive, and he hopes that since they were made by students it will bring added attention to the issue.
Of this year’s sixteen entries, Manuel Vasquez of Sheboygan South won the high school category, while Dustin Eilers of Howards Grove won the middle school category. Both won $500 and were happy and surprised to win. Second place for each category were entries from Elkhart Lake, and each received $300. All other entries received a Subway gift card for their participation.
Plans are in the works to do a similar contest next year.
Watch this story on Friday as we will have the winning entries embeded on this site. We will also have a link to the Youtube site where all 16 entries can be seen.
