Liberty High School is about to made their small screen debut on Oct. 6 when the Cartoon Network featured CONTEST - the movie made right here in Liberty, NY!

In the summer of 2012, a small but determined film crew created a movie in Liberty, Fallsburg, White Lake and other locations throughout Sullivan County. contest

In addition to the Liberty students and residents who were extras in the movie, local business owners and home owners lent their businesses to the production. "It's a real thrill to see the businesses, neighborhoods and other local scenery in a movie," said Liberty Communications Specialist Allison Ruef. "Our communities have a lot to be proud of, and knowing that this movie is a part of Cartoon Networks 'Stop Bullying, Speak Up!' campaign makes it even more special."

Throughout the month of October, the Cartoon Network's anti-bullying initiative 'Stop Bullying, Speak Up!' will feature movies, shows, pledges for kids and other resources to help bring awareness to the growing problem of bullying in our schools.

CONTEST is the story of Tommy Dolan, a bullied high school student who is suddenly befriended by his chief tormentor. Together they face challenges that will change their lives forever.

Director Anthony Giunta graciously allowed the Liberty community to get the first look ever at the movie in June, 2013 during a special screening at Liberty High School. Liberty was selected as a location, he told the audience at the screening, upon consulting with co-producer Martin Katz, a Liberty High School graduate. Katz told Giunta that he had the perfect place, and the rest, as they say, is history.

If you missed the Oct. 6th premier, the movie will be available through Time-Warner Cable's On-Demand service. Check your cable listings for details.
