Cal State Long Beach film major Aaron Finkle and his friends Francisco Martinez and Hasan Hamed created a first place prize winning video that brought $10,000 to Prisk Elementary School.  The prize, which will help fund a computer lab at the school, was awarded as part of the recent Lots2Give contest held by retailer Big Lots.  One of the film makers, Aaron, is the son of Prisk Principal Cindy Young.

In the same contest, Bancroft Middle School’s video won a second place prize of $5,000 to help fund new computers.
