2008 Sparky Award winners announced

Four student productions are winners of the second annual Sparky Awards, a contest organized by SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) and adopted by campuses nationwide that calls on entrants to creatively illustrate in a short video the value of sharing ideas. Selected by a distinguished panel of media scholars, educators, librarians, students, and others, the winning videos offer potent and colorful glimpses of how students see sharing of knowledge spurring innovation, solving problems, and improving lives. The winners were announced on January 24 at a public screening held in connection with the American Library Association Midwinter Conference in Denver. The videos will also be screened at the Campus MovieFest Southern Regional Grand Finale in Atlanta March 28 and 29, 2009
