Last month, we told you that a film produced by Effingham High School students Nick Pellman and Christy Idleman, "Dive", has made the Final 15 in the National NoBull Challenge.  The competition will conclude in July with a ceremony to be held at the National event in San Francisco.

Pellman and Idleman as well as their advisor on the film, K. L. Cleeton, plan to attend the ceremony, but they are being challenged by the cost of making the trip.  It's particularly tough for Cleeton since his physical limitations prevent him from flying.  He plans to make the trip by vehicle.  That means big bucks for fuel.  Lodging costs are also a concern.

Local residents are being invited to contribute toward the cost of making the trip. You can securely donate online by clcking here.

If you haven't had the chance to see Dive, we've embedded the full video below.
