Local video takes top spot in competition

A student-made video on cybersecurity beat out 47 other videos in a contest involving Pathways in Technology Early College High School, a six-year program that provides students with an associate degree upon completion.

The winning video came from the Rochester P-TECH program as part of an assignment to highlight in 30 seconds a technical skill and two soft skills associated with a P-TECH career path.

A total of 116 students from three schools participated in the videos, including students from the Wayne Finger Lakes P-TECH and Western New York Tech Academy.

The contest, called Leader the Way: A Greater Rochester Workforce Development Video Campaign, was sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Farash Foundation, Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce and the Rochester Area Community Foundation.

“Workforce development is a top priority for us,” said Tony Davis, director of community engagement at the New York Fed. “The economy is changing rapidly and active investment in education and training for young adults is critical.”
