Johnson Huynh, a student from SeaTac’s Global Connections High School, won a filmmaking contest sponsored by The Choices Program, with his class assignment entry “Be the Change.”

Johnson worked on the video as part of teacher Valerie Anderson’s media class.

“Good things have been happening to me since I came to Global Connections High School,” Johnson said. “I am glad I chose this school. Sometimes I think I was destined to attend here!”

First prize in the “Be the Change” contest was a camera – which Johnson will put to good use.

The contest had as its basic rule the following statement:

“Create a two minute video about what you are doing to address a global issue that matters to you.”

According to their website, The Choices Program “seeks to empower young people with the skills, knowledge, and participatory habits to be engaged citizens who are capable of addressing international issues through thoughtful public discourse and informed decision making.”

Here’s Huynh’s film:
