Get Reel Video Contest

Whitecourt launched the Get Reel Video contest in 2016, and awarded prizes to 3 submissions in early 2017.  The contest was open to local students (grades 9 to 12) from Hilltop and St. Joseph School. Youth were asked to produce a 3-5 minute video on one of three trending topics: fentanyl, meth and date rape. Congratulations to all the winners - and thank you to everyone that participated!
