Goupil earns best overall in state

SWARTZ CREEK – Swartz Creek High School junior Abbey Goupil earned top honors in the Students Leading Students “Tech Talk” statewide contest.

Goupil finished best overall for videography and took second place in photography with projects focusing on physical and mental health and bullying.

Winners were announced April 29 at the SLS Expo in Hamtramck.

The project began in January when training began for students in 22 SLS chapters across the state. Students learned videography, photography, graphic design and mobile gaming with the intent of producing a health and safety message based on one of the three adolescent health issues: physical health and safety, relationship skills and mental health.

Representatives from Best Buy, Waterford Media Network, the SLS Board of Directors, Waterford Mott High School and Clarkston Junior High School judged the entries.

Student Leadership Services, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in Michigan in 1982 to provide youth-led health and safety programs based on youth development, drug prevention principles, and youth leadership practices. – L.R.
