The Michigan Interscholastic Press Association today announced the winners of the 2016 MIPA Two-Week Film Challenge.

Students were given two weeks to create a fictional or documentary short film no longer than 5 minutes that fits the theme: “What if?” Films had to include a Frisbee and a character had to say, “Keep your eye on the prize.”

Entries were judged by Michigan State University students who participate in the Media Sandbox program.
