GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) - Two teens used their passion and skills to earn a national award for the third time, with help from the Georgetown library.
Wyatt Hester and Sean England Morris shot a video titled, "A Nod to Orwell" in which a group of teens save books in a computer-run world. It has been described as action-packed and futuristic.
The video was made for the Collaborative Summer Library Program, whose contest urged teens to make a video celebrating summer reading.
More than 100 teens from 26 states participated in the contest.
This video competition is in its fourth year. This is the third year Hester and Morris have participated and won.
The teens acted in the video when they weren't directing, and are grateful to library video teacher Heather Pelham and parents who helped get the actors where they had to be.
"This was a team effort for sure," said Morris. "Thanks to our actors: Shakira Deas, Niah S. Elder, Hunter Lee, Rowan Pelham, Alexander Pelham, and Harrison Pelham."
The teens won a cash prize, and $125 for the library's summer reading
