Columbia, SC- November 16, 2007- Students from Riverside High School in Greenville County take the lead in week two of the Healthy SC School Video Contest. At noon today, voters determined Anyone Can Juggle as the weekly winner of the Healthy SC School Video Contest.
Alex, Lauren and Kirby from Riverside High School in Greenville County submitted Anyone Can Juggle under the team name of MGM Productions. Each of the students on the team will receive a fitness prize pack from Coca Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated- and will remain in the contest for a chance to win the monthly prize of $3,500 cash!
Anyone Can Juggle is a self proclaimed ‘mind-boggling and rib-splitting’ video that uses camera tricks to show that living healthy might be perceived as a challenge, but that perception is merely an illusion.
Here is a look at the script: In a world where junk food rains down all over, it’s easy to develop poor eating habits. But eating healthy isn’t hard. Eating healthy isn’t luck. And eating healthy isn’t magic. It’s just a matter of perspective. So turn your perspective upside down and win the Healthy Challenge by eating fruits and vegetables. And don’t forget to drink your water.
The video concludes with funny outtakes titled Stop the Madness! that show a blooper reel of the making of Anyone Can Juggle.
The contest runs through January 31st, with video submissions accepted up until January 23, 2008. Each month, the video in the #1 spot will receive $3,500 cash and the runner up will receive $1,500. Schools of the top two videos each month will also receive prizes.
