2018 2nd Annual CNTA Video Contest
Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness
2nd Annual Video Contest
CNTA is pleased to announce that the winners of the 2nd Annual Video Contest are a team of two students from Stallings Island Middle School: Charles Timmons and Vivin Sudharsan, who produced "The Wrong Perspective: Nuclear Energy," a video story about myths surrounding nuclear energy.
The team will be recognized at the school's student awards ceremony and will be awarded CNTA t-shirts and a Go-Pro Camera for their school.
Jim Marra, CNTA Director, said the quality of the nuclear-themed essays and video this year is promising.
"It's reassuring to know that the upcoming generation of professionals is so knowledgeable, passionate, and astute about nuclear technology advancement," Marra said. "It's a growing industry, not only in our area, but worldwide. These students have a bright future if they continue on the track they are on now."
