BEEVILLE – An online video produced by Moreno Middle School students has won first place in a contest sponsored by the Texas A&M Health Science Center

The prize includes $4,000 in grants.

The three-minute video, mostly in black-and-white and narrated by the students, uses still photographs to outline causes of Type 2 diabetes and how to combat it.

Occurrences of the disease among youngsters 12 to 17 has been described as reaching epidemic proportions in Bee County.

“The video was completely their idea,” says Debra Hanus, who teachers gifted and talented students at Moreno.

All the students are in her G-T class.

“They used still photographs and narrated each photograph,” Hanus said.

The video was produced by eighth-grader Roslyn Holland, seventh-graders Abigail Huie and Debbie Lopes and sixth-graders Drake Moya and Dustin Clifton along with Hanus.

The video is available for viewing at http://vimeo.com/65975627.
