Gull Lake yearbook submits a video that will make you smile

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The yearbook staff from Gull Lake High School in Richland, Mich., submitted the video “Smile” into Walsworth’s 2012 Video Contest.

“Smile” uses time-lapse effects and a montage of several different Gull Lake students to demonstrate what life is like in a single day at the school.

Watch the video below, then you can vote for “Smile” over at Walsworth’s Facebook page. The video contest runs until Nov. 19, and winners will be selected by a committee of judges based on the following criteria: message and appropriateness to theme, creativity, entertainment value, viral nature as determined by the number of video Likes on Facebook and technical prowess.
