NEW: GoLocalWorcester Contributor Wins JetBlue Video Contest

Wednesday, August 22, 2012


The winning video put a Worcester spin on the Wizard of Oz.

GoLocalWorcester Contributor Jennifer Roy and her team were named the winners of local airport activist Bill Randell's JetBlue video submission contest today, taking home the $2,000 prize.

The video was a play on the Wizard of Oz, with some Worcester and JetBlue spin. Roy portrayed Dorothy, and the team was also granted free round-trip tickets to any city JetBlue serviced.. The other members of the team included David Le Boeuf, a current Harvard student, voting activist, and one of Worcester's "10 Coolest People," as the Scarecrow.

Suiting up as the Tin Man was Worcester Regional Flight Academy founder George Charles Allen, and Clark University student Joseph Carpenter portrayed the Cowardly Lion. The video was produced by Barry Gadbois.

You can check out the video for yourself below.
