Assumption College Team Wins Woo Tube 101 Video Contest

Assumption College seniors Gregory Sebastiao and Thomas Sleeper have won the Woo Tube 101 Video competition, sponsored by the Consortium of Worcester Colleges (COWC). Sebastiao and Sleeper, who entered the competition as the “Hound Vision” team, will share the $1,000 prize to be awarded for their winning entry, “Wootube 2010.” An independent three-judge panel selected Sebastiao’s and Sleeper’s video as the best among the dozen entries submitted by student teams from COWC-member colleges.

The Woo Tube 101 contest challenged students at Worcester Consortium colleges and universities to make three-to-five minute videos that promote Worcester and/or the region. Students were asked to post their completed videos on YouTube prior to the competition deadline. Contest entries were judged on creativity and ability to promote Worcester and the region, said Michael Vigneux, director of public affairs at the Consortium.
Sebastiao, who is majoring in English with a concentration in writing and mass communications, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Sebastiao of Uxbridge. Sleeper, an economics major, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Neill Sleeper of Natick.
