Student film wins provincial, national contests, now on to international

September 11, 2017

Walnut Grove Secondary student Ethan Eigenfeldt won top prize at the annual WorkSafe BC Student Video Contest 2017 for his film “Find Your Voice” and it has recently been announced that his film has gone on to win the national contest and be nominated into the international contest.

Ethan’s film began as an entry into the WorkSafeBC Student Film contest while he was a grade 11 student at WGSS. When Ethan won the provincial competition, he was presented with a cash prize by WorkSafe BC, recognized by the Langley Board of Education at the April public meeting and praised by then-principal of WGSS George Kozlovic and teacher Ryan Radford. Ethan’s film was then forwarded to the Canadian Centre for Health and Safety national contest, which he went on to win. Though Ethan will be unable to attend the international competition during the XII World Congress on Safety and Health at work in Singapore, it is an impressive feat just to be nominated. Ethan’s now in grade 12 and continuing his explorations in video production while at school and using those skills running his own successful wedding video business.
