Students Create Radon Awareness Videos

Students in Chatham, IL are putting their creativity to the test.

Glenwood High School students are competing in a radon awareness contest. They submitted five videos to the American Lung Association. It’s to show the public about health hazards associated with radioactive gas.

Students used everything from digital editing systems to green screens to create their projects. Glenwood High School offers its students a comprehensive broadcasting program. One that has grown in recent years.

“Even when I started here sophomore year we didn’t have near this much equipment. We had four computers to edit on now we have like 20 or so to use. It’s really nice cause I’m looking to go into this field and so any experience I can get before entering college is really helpful,” say senior Scott Vennell.
