CAMP students awarded at the California Student Media Festival!

Posted by Gretchen Peratt on 08-22-2016

This past June, four students of the CAMP program were awarded at the California Student Media Festival:

Now at its 50th year, the California Student Media Festival is our nation’s oldest student media festival. The Festival exists to celebrate the amazing media and multimedia projects produced by California’s students and teachers –  rewarding their successful classwork at an awards in June every year. The festival showcases what can be accomplished when talented students and dedicated teachers work together integrating media and multimedia into education. CAMP students were expected to create a video highlighting a school subject/category and showcase what they have learned. The video could not include any copyright materials.

In June 2016, the awards were held at the Zipper Concert Hall at the Colburn School of Los Angeles, California. In addition to receiving a plaque to showcase the accomplishments, teachers of all winning entries will receive a one-year membership to CUE and teachers of overall winners were given a cash prize and one complimentary registration to the CUE 2017 National Conference in Palm Springs!

Congrats to the following CAMP kids:

SkillsUSA Nationals June 20-25, 2016 Louisville, Ky

Posted by Gretchen Peratt on 08-12-2016

This past June, four Computer and Media Pathway (CAMP) students from Apple Valley High School competed at the National level for SkillsUSA. SkillsUSA, a National Student Organization, is a partnership of students, teachers and industries working together to provide America with a skilled workforce. SkillsUSA helps each student excel. They provide educational programs, events and competitions that support career and technical education (CTE) in the nation’s classrooms.  This past April, the AVHS CAMP students placed first in the California SkillsUSA competition, qualifying them to represent our state at the National level in Louisville, KY, where they competed against students representing other states and territories.


Natalie Biendara (now a senior) and Mackenzie Goodrow (graduated in May, 2016) competed in the Digital Cinema Competition. This team competition evaluates each contestant’s preparation for employment and recognizes outstanding students for excellence and professionalism in the cinematography/short film production field. The contest was divided into four portions: a written examination to assess knowledge of industry standards, a storyboard assignment to be completed in teams of two people, an interview with 1 or more judges, and a short video (4.5 to 5 minutes) to be filmed and edited on site (all work must be done between contest briefing and designated turn-in time). All footage must be acquired after the contest begins and must be filmed within the areas specified by the field assignment. The girls had 36 hours to complete these requirements.

They placed 6th in this competition. Please watch their video at:


Gabe Lopez and Ahsan Bari (both graduated in May, 2016) competed in the Web Page Design competition. This team competition includes a series of challenges focusing on website usability and accessibility, with at least one challenge related to scripting. Each challenge must be documented, clearly demonstrating the skills as outlined in the SkillsUSA Championships Technical Standards. They also placed 6th in this competition.


The students’ hard work and creativity was amazing to witness, and Apple Valley High School and the CAMP Academy could not be more proud of them.
