KidsMatter hosted their annual Digital Footprint Video Contest, showcasing the top ten student made public service announcements at City Hall.
The red carpet event showcased the impact of your digital footprint, and the effect that bullying can have, both online and offline.
Participants got the Hollywood treatment as they walked the red carpet and had their picture taken with Mayor Pradel.
Once the videos were shown, votes were collected via text message, and 16-year-old Neuqua Valley High School student Mackenzie Sammeth, took home the first place prize for her video, “Shattered” – winning $500 for her school, and $200 for herself.
“I just really hope people get the symbolism behind it, when you bully someone on social media, it is so permanent and it really does shatter them,” said Mackenzie Sammeth.
