NHS student filmmakers earn recognition at state competition

Navasota students participated in the Skills USA state level competition in March. Students competed in audio/video technology, computer programming, photography, and in medical mathematics. Skills USA is a national nonprofit organization serving teachers and high school and college students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations, including health occupations.

Six student-produced short films earned ribbons at the state competition. White Ribbon project winners were: Austin Espinoza for his production entitled, Misplacement, and Marquez Byrd and Saul Coronilla for Pink; Red Ribbon winners were Alec Chilton for Gaming Adrift, Martin Corona for The Guru, and Grace Mock and Diego Regalado for The Struggle; Blue Ribbon winners were Fernando Baeza and Salomon Corona for Sleep Hard.  

The Navasota Audio/Visual and Photography Media Crew Teams, Computer Programming Team, and Medical Science Team went to their first District Skills USA competition earlier this spring hosted in Beaumont at Lamar University.

Navasota is a part of the Texas District 7 in Skills USA, now one of the largest districts in Texas, with over 1,600 kids competing in a variety of job-skill related competitions. Though Navasota was one of the smallest schools competing, with a large majority being 4A or 5A schools, Navasota students from every group advanced to state, with a total of 12 students going to state.

State advancers in Audio/Visual Group Project Submission were: Fernando Baeza & Salomon Corona, Marquez Byrd & Saul Coronilla, and Grace Mock & Diego Regalado, and in Audio/Visual Individual Project Submission advancers were Alec Chilton, Martin Corona, and Austin Espinoza.  In the Photography Competition Karin Padron placed 4th, in the Computer Programming Competition Joshua Seymore placed 4th, and in the Medical Math Competition Irais Castellon placed 2nd overall.
