Lyndon B. Johnson High School students snagged first place at the state level for UIL Young Filmmakers Film Festival. The students created a film titled Moving Forward where they covered the topic of immigration and some of the issues effecting border cities, specifically the Laredo area. To show the impact immigration has had on the community the students featured local politicians and various law enforcement entities who are on the front lines navigating through these issues. This year, films that promoted social change and address social issues will be eligible for the Nobelity Social Impact Award. LBJ took First Place in this category for their division. This award is presented by the Nobelity Project and the Paramount Theatre.
