Williamsburg Christian Academy Wins More Than $50,000 in lockers and scholarships in “Duralife Unlocker Challenge” National Video Competition on Inclusivity

Scranton Products has awarded Williamsburg Christian Academy (WCA) $50,000 in Duralife plastic lockers and $7,500 in scholarships as first prize in the Duralife Unlocker Challenge national video competition. Created by Scranton Products, a leading manufacturer of plastic toilet partitions and lockers, the video competition challenged students to think about inclusivity and diversity in their schools and everyday lives to produce a video entry. Through online voting open to the public, Williamsburg Christian Academy’s was part of the TOP 100 videos selected to be judged. The video was then selected from a judging panel as the winner from among 260 submissions nationally.

The competition’s theme, “Through the Locker Door,” asked students to explain why inclusivity is important to a more positive school environment and how it applies later in life. In producing their videos, students chose to expand the theme to include topics ranging from diversity and race relations to bullying and students with special needs.

Williamsburg Christian Academy serves students in pre-K through grade 12. Students at WCA created a video that looked literally “through the locker door” to demonstrate many aspects of inclusivity in a student’s life. The students used traditional videography as well as green screen technology and a drone to produce the winning video, which can be found online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26eS0n1wfC4. Dr. Dianna Lindsay, head of the high school at Williamsburg Christian Academy, served as the adviser on the project.

Participating schools spanned every region of the country from coast-to-coast.
