The winners of the hunger bytes! video contest have been chosen, and the first-place videos can be viewed on the hunger bytes! site.

If you’d like to make videos of what your school is doing for Haiti or about hunger issues, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line. We’d love to see what you’re doing.

Here’s more about our hunger bytes! winners:

In the Over-18 category, amateur filmmakers Carlos Antonio Michel Sandoval and Miguel Angel Mier Delgado of Zacatecas, Mexico will travel to Guatemala with WFP, and try out their film-making skills on the frontline against hunger.   Their winning video – a thought-provoking clip entitled “Dreams” shows the different ways food and hunger are viewed, depending upon where in the world you come from: see the video here.

For the Under-18s, 14-year old John Beck, an American student at an international school in Rome, Italy, won a full web video production kit, provided by AVID Technology, industry leaders in video editing software, for his poignant “Dinner is Served” video, in which a Silver-Service waiter dishes up a meal comprising of a compact emergency food ration: see the video here.

Enjoy the videos and get inspired to support Haiti.  "Students Helping Haiti" raised more than $35,000 for the Haitians, and with your dedication and enthusiasm, people will be aware of hunger issues around the world.
