Two Cayuga Community College students have won prizes for creating short videos that tell "Why I Chose Cayuga." During the past summer, the college posted a YouTube video contest with that theme, inviting incoming students to submit original entries of 30 to 90 seconds in length. Two prizes were awarded, and both winners are enrolled at the college's Fulton campus.
A panel of Cayuga faculty members judged the entries for content, aesthetics, technical quality and overall impression. They awarded the Grand Prize, an Apple iPad, to Kelsey MacDougall of Fulton, a graduate of Mexico High School.
Based on online voting, Matt Jennings of Liverpool, a graduate of Liverpool High School, won the People's Choice award and received a Flip Mino HD digital camcorder.
