Local Middle School Student Takes 3rd Place in CSPAN Video Contest 

Bend's Alexander Reese takes home a third place award in the CSPAN StudentCam contest.

In January, Source staffer Anne Pick wrote a feature story about the CSPAN StudentCam contest, which put cameras in the hands of local students and asked them to put together a video that dealt with pressing national issues.

Several area students submitted videos and now the winners have been announced. One of the third place winners  in the middle school category was Aleczander Reese, an eighth grader at High Desert Middle School. His short film, "What You See and What You Don't: A Neighborhood in Peril," tells of his experiences and those of many Central Oregonians in the ongoing recession. He talks about how foreclosures and unemployment has changed his neighborhood. But rather than read about it, watch the video below. OR you can see it on CSPAN on Friday, April 9.

Another group from Summit High School consisting of Chelsey Hice, Savanna Jones and Emily Strome received an honorable mention for their vide entitled, "Gender Wage Gap: A Thing of the Past?"

  • Don't Miss The Ascetic Junkies At Silver Moon

    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock.
