Hate speech, mistrust between police and minority youth, students' First Amendment rights. These are topical headlines. However, how often can you view these stories through the lens of high school students? Civic Life Project’s (CLP) mission is to use digital media storytelling and community dialogues to engage students in civics education and public issues.
We are writing to invite high school and college students to participate in the Third Civic Life Project Youth Film Challenge. Students can take up our Challenge by producing a short form documentary on a civic issue of concern to them.
A highly esteemed panel of Jurors, including Dan Rather, Bill Moyers, Keli Goff and Lynn Sherr have agreed to review and judge all finalist entries. The award winning short films be screened at a special Gala Screening at the Bushnell Theater in Hartford on May 22nd.
Submission: You must upload on Youtube or Vimeo and enter the link on the submission form by Monday, April 30, 2018.
