The “Impact of Giving Back” Contest
From now through January 20, submissions are open for the second White House Student Film Festival. The theme of this year’s festival is The Impact of Giving Back, and it’s open to U.S. students, grades K-12.
Students can tell their stories about paying it forward, about community service, or what making a difference looks like in their eyes and through their lens. It can be a fictional story or a short documentary, so break out the lights, write a script, get the camera ready, and show us your passion for service and giving back. Go the White House Film Festival website for more details.
The official selections will be featured on the White House website, and shared across the world on White House sites and official social media accounts. Winners may have a chance to attend the film festival at the White House!
Graduation is a completion and a new beginning. If you have students in your programs graduating in December please, before they go, ask them to create a 10 second to two minute recording or a brief paragraph or two about how alternative education has supported them and/or changed the direction of their lives in a positive way. Their personal input. Remember, our students are our greatest resources.
We MUST have permission to publish them if we are to share them publicly.
Also, any photos of our students, especially our Seniors would be OH SO GREAT!!! Those can be emailed to Vicki Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please remember to include the name of the students, event name, (if applicable), and most of all, the name of the ALE program and school.
