Three videos produced by local students have been entered in a contest sponsored by the PBS station, KCTS in Seattle. And you can help them win.

One film, "In full view of the Ocian," was selected by professional documentarians to receive an honorable mention award. "Hiking Safety" and "Purple Plague," the other two films, are now in the running for Audience Favorite.

All the student films from this summer's film camp are now being featured on the KCTS Web site.

The Daily Astorian reported on the students' four-day-long camp, in which they worked closely with Lewis and Clark National Historical Park rangers and professional documentarians to learn the craft.

The culmination of the camp was a public premier for the films at the Liberty Theater earlier this month.

The contest ends Oct. 1. Log on to KCTS' Web site to vote.

All the films, including those that have already won awards, can be viewed at the Web site (http://www.kcts9.org/community/environment/digitalstorycompetition)
