Twenty teams of high school students across the state created videos for the Oregon Youth Employment Safety Video contest.  Seven were selected as finalists.  On Saturday, at an event at Northern Lights Theater, Eden McCall was awarded First place and some prizes for her amazing work.  Her video was shown on the big screen in front of a theater packed with other finalists.  Most of the videos were created by large teams, it was even more impressive that she created this video completely on her own.  A link to Eden’s video can be found on the Sprague Website.  Way to Go Eden!!! 5/2
