How do Alaska skateboarders deal with winter?
Christian Hartwell, a senior at Dimond High School, set out to inform people just where Alaska skaters go when indoor skate parks aren't open. He produced a short film called "Skateboarding in Alaska," which was featured at the "After School Special " youth film screening put on by the Bear Tooth Theater and Alaska Teen Media Institute last fall. His film provides an opportunity for young Alaska skaters to have a voice and showcase their talents.
Christian is a 2014 Spirit of Youth Award recipient in the category of Media & Technology.
