Scott Student Wins State "Capture the Earth" Contest with Video

A student from Scott High School won a state competition for a video about climate change.

The annual Capture the Earth photo and video contest was initiated in 2011 by the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet and has been highly competitive, attracting a number of submissions each year.

“It’s wonderful to see so many students using their talents to recognize and promote the beauty and safekeeping of our Commonwealth through photos or videos,” said Energy and Environment Cabinet Secretary Charles Snavely.

Keegan Hennessy, a sophomore at Scott in Taylor Mill won the Capture the Earth videography contest for high school students, for his video, Re-cycle and Re-use, Stop Climate Change. The video featured an effective use of images, video, and music to send a strong message about climate change, a news release said.

For his win, Hennessy will receive a one-night stay with family at a Kentucky State Resort Park of their choice.
