Newport video shows you one way to resolve a yearbook standoff

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

For their entry in Walsworth’s 2012 Video Contest, the yearbook staff at Newport High School in Newport, Wash., decided to show you how to settle any standoffs over that last book at the sales table.

A simple game of Rock-Paper-Scissors? Or maybe just a bit more.

Watch the video below, then you can vote for Newport’s “Resolve a Yearbook Standoff” over at Walsworth’s Facebook page by giving it a Like. 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.
