In an effort to spark a social movement against hatred in all forms, USC Shoah Foundation and Discovery Education today launched the fifth annual IWitness Video Challenge
First, students will hear testimonies of survivors and witnesses of genocide. They will then complete a research-based and standards-aligned activity. After being inspired to counter hate, participants will develop a community action project. To be considered for the IWitness Video Challenge, students must document their experience in a video essay for submission.
The student who creates the national winning entry will receive a $5,000 scholarship. Second place will receive a $1,000 scholarship; third place, a $500 scholarship.
The educator associated with the national winning entry will receive a $1,000 grant to inspire, impact and implement change in their local school.
The school or organization associated with the national winning entry will receive a $2,500 grant to implement change in their community.
Submissions for the 2018 IWitness Video Challenge are being accepted now until April 13, 2018. For more information and complete rules, visit IWitness.usc.edu.
