TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) -- The videos they produce are so slick that you might think that it was put together by a top-notch production company.
Instead, it was put together by students from Christopher King's class at the Tuscaloosa Center for Technology.
Two of King's students recently won first place in the Alabama SkillsUSA video competition.
"We had things moving across the screen. It was a very busy video," said Sean Miller, an upcoming junior. "There were things going on in different places – a lot of action shots. We didn't want anything too boring."
The two students who won will compete in the SkillsUSA national competition that is set to be held in Kansas City.
However, it costs quite a bit of money to travel that far.
Now, though, the trip won't be quite as expensive.
Christopher King was awarded this week's $1,000 grant as a part of CBS42's One Class At A Time program.
The money will allow the Tuscaloosa Center for Technology with the chance to continue building on a dynasty.
This is the ninth time students from the Center have made it to the national competition, and they are confident about defending their national title.
"I expect to win nationals. I do," King said. "Alabama won first place last year. I'm expecting to win [first place] again."
