The Michigan Interscholastic Press Association today announced the winners of the 2017 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 “Changing colors.” Films had to include a clock and a character had to say, “I think I have made a mistake.”

Entries were judged by a panel of MIPA member advisers.
