MetroWest Daily News Editor-in-chief Richard Lodge was the guest juror and reviewed the finalists and selected the winners.

Mr. Lodge commented on the strength of Manning and Clark’s best overall video,  “After watching it I felt I knew a lot about Maybritt, her motivation for coming to Hopkinton High School and how she is viewed by the school community. I thought the questions were good and overall video editing was impressive.”
