Santa Susana High School in Simi Valley won the grand prize of $20,000 in the GOT MILK? “Battle for Milquarious, White Gold Milkdonkulous Giveaway.” The contest was designed to encourage teens to get creative with their video-making skills for a chance to win thousands of dollars for their public high schools’ art programs.
Santa Susana received close to 11,000 online votes. Students from the school submitted a video entry after recreating the last of seven scenes from GOT MILK?’s online rock opera titled “Battle for Milkquarious” The online 20-minute rock opera is intended to reach California teens with the message of the health benefits of drinking milk for strong bones, muscles, hair, teeth and nails. The rock opera chronicles White Gold’s quest to save his hometown of Milkquarious from a potentially deadly milk shortage. The students at Santa Susana acted out the scene using homemade props and creative video editing.
The school that received the second most online votes is Pioneer Technical Center in Madera, which will receive $10,000 for its live action entry. The students acted out the second scene of the rock opera that tells the first meeting of White Gold and his partner in crime, Jug Life, to save Milkquarious.
