South High students Matt Ostrow, Ryan Wied, Christine Wilson, Drew Chirpich, and Jessica Bentley created “Responding to Emergency: The 35W Bridge Collapse,” a video about this event and the construction of the new bridge. They produced the piece with help from the Minneapolis Television Network (MTN) through the Voices program.
MTN has been a partner with Minneapolis South High since 1989 in the Voices program. Voices is a social studies class at South, but a vital part of that class is the partnership with MTN. MTN trains students in the Voices class in camera and editing, and the students make documentaries and PSA’s on important social issues.
VOICES stands for Values, Options, Issues and ChoicEs in Society.
