Powerful Opportunity for Students and Educators to Inspire Communities Nationwide

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.
