A STUDENT from Stevenage has finished runner-up in a national film making competition. Alex Crowley, 17, who is studying interactive media at Hertfordshire Regional College, finished second in ‘In the can’ – a competition that challenged young people to make a film to help keep their peers safe on the roads.Alex says, ‘I’ve recently started driving lessons and have been looking into road safety online. I saw the competition and felt I could make a film expressing the issue of using a mobile while driving.’Stuart Pile, the county council’s executive member for highways and transport, said, ‘Many congratulations to Alex on his thought-provoking film. This is what makes the ‘In the can’ campaign such a great idea – young people understand how to communicate with their peers and we hope to learn from the approaches they have taken.’You can watch Alex’s film along with the other winners at: www.inthecan.org.uk
