UNIONDALE - No one knows yet who will win the Academy Award for best picture, but three Hofstra students have just won a contest to attend the Oscars.

The three are winners of the "On The Red Carpet College Journalist Contest." They beat out more than 200 college teams from around the country for the chance to rub elbows with the stars. Melanie Rubin, Beth Laschever and Jackie DeTore made a video showcasing their production and interviewing skills. The girls will report from the red carpet at the Oscars and will also get to go to the Governor's Ball.
