The Obama administration continues to bring new programs to the table. The White House has announced their first ever student film festival for students from K-12. Contest finalists will have their short films premiered at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and the films will also be featured on the White House website and other social networks.
Students should create films under 3 minutes long and should focus on the power of technology in schools. The theme should either be how students currently use technology in class or school, or what role technology will hold in the future in an educational setting. Submissions are due January 29, 2014.
The contest is requiring all submissions to be unique material, uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo, and submitted by a parent or guardian.
