With 250,000 votes cast, there was no question that 33 local high schools were in the competition to win. The first ever “FOX 50 Lip Dub Project” was a FOX 50 community initiative launched in Super Bowl XLV.
Students worked with teachers to conceive and produce a music video “lip syncing” the words of their selected song. The music video was shot in one take with no editing allowed, other than inserting the music track over the video.
The top 3 videos, determined by most online votes, would win one-of-three cash prizes including the grand prize of $10,000!
38 submission videos came from 33 different high schools in the FOX 50 viewing area. With 25 cities represented and 18 of the 22 counties in the FOX 50 viewing area included – The winners are:
Grand Prize $10,000 awarded to Clayton High School
First Runner up – $ 5000 awarded to Apex High School
Second Runner up – $2,500 awarded to Hobbton High School
