Verdict Is In: Best Law Student Video
Remember the "One Less Worry Contest"? It was the contest we reported here in March that promised to award $10,000 to the best law student video depicting the worries of law school. Sponsored by Access Group, a nonprofit student loan company, the contest's rules were simple: Produce a video of no more than four minutes and upload it to a special YouTube page. Entrants had to be enrolled as a law student as of Aug. 1. Over the summer, Access Group narrowed the entries to 10 finalists and then opened the contest to a public vote to determine the winner.
At long last, the contest is over, and the winner of the $10,000 is Steven K. Luther for his video, "I Don't Know What I'll Do This Summer". The video takes the form of a trailer for a feature film about a law student's struggle over which summer offer to accept -- the big-bucks New York firm or the environmental nonprofit in Oregon. The video is very funny and suggests Luther's best option might be to abandon a career in law in favor of one in Hollywood. Luther is a student at Washington University in St. Louis School of Law, where he is chief articles editor this year for the Washington University Law Review.
In addition to the $10,000 awarded to Luther, Access Group awarded $1,500 each to the top finalists in five categories as honorable mentions:
All the winning videos can be seen at the contest's YouTube page.
