Sony Creative Software announced the winners of its second national student film contest, Technology in Motion: Community of the Future, at an awards ceremony during the National Educational Computing Conference in Washington, D.C.

Technology in Motion is an educational program with a contest component that is designed for teachers to engage students in grades 6-12 in professional video and audio production. Each school that submitted an eligible entry received one launch kit, which included a free copy of Vegas Pro 8 Promotional Edition video and audio production software and Cinescore professional soundtrack creation software, as well as video tutorials and a curriculum guide to structure the production process.

Each school uploaded their film submissions to the Technology in Motion website to be judged by a panel comprising professionals from the film and music industries. The top three films were selected from hundreds of entries, with Pacific Coast High School in Tustin, Calif., receiving the grand prize for its submission "Full Circle." In second place was Lomas High School of Walnut Creek, Calif., for the submission "The Future."

"2048: A Rock Opera" from Red Bank Middle School in Red Bank, N.J., came in third.

"Sony Creative Software is pleased to support this second national Technology in Motion competition. The program provides students and teachers with the latest software tools for video storytelling projects and effectively invigorates video education curriculums," said Dave Chaimson, vice president of worldwide marketing for Sony Creative Software, in a statement.

The prize packages awarded to grand, second, and third place schools include more than $400,000 in retail value of Sony hardware and software products, including Vegas Pro 8 Promotional Edition software, Sound Forge 9 software and site licenses, ACID Pro 7 software and site licenses, Cinescore software, Sony Handycam Camcorders, and accessories.
