PBS’ Student Reporting Labs video honored at White House film fest

President Barack Obama is showcasing the work of students from around the country who produced short films about service and giving back for a White House contest. The budding filmmakers include a Montana 6-year-old alarmed about climate change, a group of Chicago high school students who spin a hip-hop yarn of encouragement for peers facing adversity and Austin, Texas, students who organized a wheelchair challenge that raised more than $80,000 to install automatic push button doors in their school. The students from Texas are also part of PBS NewsHour’s Student Reporting Labs.
