High schools give each other lip in video battle

ARLINGTON — So just how does anyone judge a high school lip dub contest?

First, one has to determine if school spirit is portrayed in each music video. Then there’s an examination of the quality of lip-synching, audio dubbing, acting and dancing by hundreds of students. Creativity is scrutinized. Above all, it has to be obvious that each lip dub was filmed in one continuous take.

The art of the lip dub is not new, but Arlington High School students hope to make regional, competitive lip dub an annual event.

The first Wesco Invitational Lip Dub Competition on Wednesday evening at Arlington included videos by
