Congratulations are in order for Monache High School’s Multimedia and Technology Academy (MTA) Pathway after 19 Marauders won awards in The Friends of Tulare County (FTC) Listos CV19 Youth Media Challenge.
“The purpose of the competition was to highlight youth-created art focused on promoting COVID-19 safety guidelines in languages representing Tulare County, utilizing three categories: audio, graphic design, and video,” states the FTC website.
A total of five high schools and 30 students participated in the challenge, but Monache was by far the biggest winner. Of the 18 winning entries, Monache claimed 10 through individual and group entries.
To top it all off, Monache garnered even more attention with its winning work when it was displayed and heard through various mediums throughout the county, showing its efforts weren’t just an assignment but a true public awareness campaign.
“When our students are allowed opportunities like this one, they see the true purpose behind their education: their skills contribute to more than just a grade book, but to society,” graphic design teacher Monica Toriz, said. “This is what we want for all of our students.”
