Designed to provide actionable ways to promote equality, while also challenging bias and intolerance, the fifth annual IWitness Video Challenge encourages students to make a change in their communities. After hearing testimonies of survivors and witnesses of genocide, participants will complete a research-based and standards-aligned activity and develop a community action project. To be considered for the IWitness Video Challenge, students must document their experience in a video essay for submission.
Top entries from students, teachers, and schools will be awarded scholarships and grants. The student with the national winning entry will receive a $5,000 scholarship; their teacher will receive a $1,000 grant; and their school will receive a $2,500 grant. The second- and third-place students will receive $1,000 and $500 scholarships, respectively.
Deadline for submissions: April 13, 2018 for more information go to IWitness.usc.edu.
