REAL to REEL: Education Video Contest

Education funding is in jeopardy with the announcement of Gov. Tom Corbett's budget proposal.  Steep cuts to vital programs and educational services are a very REAL possibility.  Well, now's YOUR chance to make a difference – all while using your creativity and showing off those REEL video skills!

EducationVotersPA, a grassroots organization committed to supporting public education, is sponsoring a video contest to promote the importance of education funding in Pennsylvania.

They're looking for original, compelling videos, no more than 3 minutes in length, to depict: 

1)    The impact education has on communities and individuals OR on society and our economy. 
2)    The personal impact of education funding cuts.

Videos can feature live people, stills, animation – whatever you think best demonstrates your concept.  Just be clear, compelling and make it real!

Winners will be selected in the following categories:

•    Individual: Student
•    Individual: Non-student
•    Group or organization: Students, parents, teachers, civic associations, etc

There will also be a single prize - for groups OR individuals - for the best film focused specifically on higher education. 

A total of 4 winners will be selected.  The deadline to enter is May 8, 2011.

For more information and full contest rules, visit EducationVotersPA.  Get out those cameras, make a difference and share your voice in support of education funding!
