          Immediately after being elected, Mayor Tisdale embarked on a plan to revitalize the Village’s cable channel.  Having already successfully negotiated the agreement to renew the cable TV franchise during the first of his two terms on Council, now-Mayor Tisdale wanted to create a channel that would have significant content.  Content that would engage Villagers.  Re-christened as KCHV-TV, Comcast Cable channel 22 debuted last year with real programming!

          Mayor Tisdale realized that the programming needed to be interesting and relevant to Villagers.  He constructed the Mayor’s Competition for Student Produced Videos.  After meeting with principals and other school officials to enlist their support, Mayor Tisdale created a meaningful opportunity for students to learn the value of engaging and becoming involved in their own community—their Village!  The assigned task for students at Cherry Hills Village Elementary, St. Mary’s Academy, West Middle and Kent Denver Schools was to produce videos that celebrated the beauty, history, legacy and value of the High Line Canal Trail.

          Without using any Village funds, raising all costs—and prize money—from interested donors, students accepted Mayor Tisdale’s challenge with enthusiasm that was extraordinary!  Winners of the competition can be found on Mayor Tisdale’s website.  The top three can be viewed by clicking on the links below.  Mayor Tisdale distributed almost $3,000 in prize money to students at our schools!  The creativity demonstrated was awesome, with beautiful images of the High Line Canal Trail captured and preserved for posterity (picture above).

          Mayor Tisdale hopes you enjoy the work of these young filmmakers and that you too will celebrate the High Line!
