Sisters place top three in a national contest
GRENADA -- Two sisters in Grenada County’s 4-H program placed in the top three in a national video contest.
Isabella Kinder, 15, won second place in her age division and $300 in the “Do the Ride Thing” video contest for all-terrain vehicles and dirt bike safety. Katrina Kinder, 18, won third place in her age division and $200. Contest sponsors included the ATV Safety Institute, the Right Rider Access Fund and the Motorcycle Safety Foundation Dirt Bike School.
To enter the contest, each participant videoed a short public service announcement and uploaded it to YouTube. After the video was uploaded, they submitted an entry form on the ATV Safety Institute website.
The videos showed dirt bike and ATV safety rules related to proper safety equipment and other precautions.
Isabella’s video, “Motocross Josh,” demonstrates safety guidelines for riding dirt bikes the right way. The PSA communicates the safety guidelines in an interesting, lighthearted way. Isabella’s video is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4EL-payqAo.
