The Appalachian Theatre of the High Country won $10,000 in a video contest.

The winning video, produced by the Appalachian Theatre, was part of First Horizon’s “25 Years of Giving” competition.

Five hundred nonprofit organizations submitted videos up to 60 seconds in length illustrating how a grant has helped or could help the community.

Only the top 35 videos, as determined by public voting, were reviewed by a panel of celebrity judges who selected the winning videos and award amounts.

The Appalachian Theatre’s video received more popular votes than any of the 100 entries from across North Carolina.

The $10,000 award will be used to help with construction costs currently under way at the theatre.
