When the 3DayOK Partnership launched the 3DayOK campaign in September 2014, we also invited Onondaga County residents to participate in the 3DayOK Video Contest. We asked contestants, in 60 seconds or less, to show us how they’re 3DayOK.
The contest ran from Sept. 9 through Dec. 12, 2014, and was open to individuals at least 13 years of age who are permanent residents of Onondaga County, or full-time students at a college or university in Onondaga County. We received several entries, and the three finalists were selected by the 3DayOK Communications Committee. We then asked residents to vote for their favorite video through our website.
And the winner is …
Bradley Stoyell, a freshman at Marcellus Senior High School, was selected by the public as the winner of the 3DayOK Video Contest! Bradley, 14, is the son of Michelle and Jeff Stoyell.
We asked Bradley to tell us why he entered the contest, and here’s what he said:
“The main reason I entered the contest was because my science teacher, Ms. Kelly, who knows that I love the weather, thought this would be something that would interest me. I also thought that this would help me learn more about the weather and what to do when a storm is approaching. Preparing for this contest gave me more knowledge about what to have with me when a storm hits, which is very important here in Central New York with how quickly our weather changes. I realized that with the proper supplies (even items that I did not mention) and plan, everyone can be 3DayOK. I also learned that if you are not 3DayOK, you could end up hurting yourself as well as your friends and family. If we're faced with a storm, I hope everyone can stay 3DayOK.”
Bradley received an Apple iPad courtesy of our friends at Visual Technologies, of Syracuse. The other finalists – Grace Getman, 14 (Christian Brothers Academy) and Benjamin Posnick, 15 (Onondaga Central Junior/Senior High School) – received merchandise gift cards valued at $250 and $100.
Thank you to everyone who voted in the 3DayOK video contest!
