Centenary student a finalist in national video contest | Arts & Culture
Centenary senior Krista McKinney has been named as one of seven finalists – the only from the state of Louisiana – in the YES! Video Contest, a national competition organized by the National Association of Schools & Colleges of the United Methodist Church (NASCUMC).
McKinney’s entry sought to answer NASCUMC’s question: Why does your school’s connection to the United Methodist Church matter? Online voting will determine the Grand Prize winner; voting closes at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1.
McKinney’s submission, which can be found at http://promoshq.wildfireapp.com/website/6/contests/255105/voteable_entries/60257196, was chosen out of 34 entries from students at 25 National Association of Schools & Colleges of the United Methodist Colleges (NASCUMC).
Her video explores how students and alumni have grown from their experience of Centenary as a United Methodist College, focusing on the concepts of serving, connecting, worshipping, and continuing.
A DeRidder native, McKinney has always had a passion for campus ministry. She has been a member of the Christian Leadership Center since her freshmen year at Centenary and has served on mission trip to Fayetteville, AR, and Memphis, TN. She is also one of the leaders of Serve Another in Love (S.A.I.L.), a student-led service organization committed to inspiring a culture of caring on Centenary’s campus.
The Grand Prize winner will receive a GoPro HDHero2 camera, FinalCutProX video editing software, and three hours of one-on-one coaching in direction, cinematography, and editing.
First, second, and third-place winners will be selected by popular vote. Voting is available online until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1, at http://promoshq.wildfireapp.com/website/6/contests/255105/voteable_entries/60257196.
