It was a tough competition, but one Banana Slug rose to the top!

The winner of the 2012 Hire Education video contest is . . . 

Adam Cline!

Adam (Porter '12) is a Film & Digital Media major who entered this contest because "it was an opportunity to show why I continued my education in the first place."
