The Video Contest is for K-12th grades throughout the nation and is centered around the theme of the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights! In a 1-2:30 minute video students may choose to illustrate the purposes and applications of the First Amendment that may include its history, adoption, and recognition of significant individuals involved. Or they may focus on any concept or specific freedom included in the First Amendment such as the Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, etc. Students may also apply the First Amendment protections to current or historical situations and court cases. Along with the cash prizes that will be awarded, the winning videos may be played at some of the Freedom Festival’s patriotic events including the Stadium of Fire. The deadline is March 1. Special judging criteria will be based on how well you can tell a compelling story through video with attention to visual impact and artistic detail, while offering an inspirational message to your audience.
