WSU Clark County Extension 4-H’ers Receive National Honor for Video

Two Clark County 4-H teens have been recognized for their outstanding science video.
Heather Giberson, 18, of Battleground and Melissa Brown, also 18, from Vancouver, received second place out of 24 entries in the national 4-H Digital Storytelling project. 
Their seven minute video, Music Rocks the Brain, examines how music stimulates the brain and positively impacts academic and sports performance. 
“We found that kids do better in school, socially, and in athletics by being exposed to different types of music,” said Giberson, who did extensive editing on the piece.
The 4-H’ers learned how to interview, shoot video, and work collaboratively during the four month project.  Clark County 4-H was one of eight 4-H programs nationwide to receive funding for the project.  Three videos were submitted locally involving 15 Clark County teens who had no previous experience in videography.
