Ethnic Heritage Council’s Student Video Contest
gives youth a voice in their ethnic community history


There’s still time to enter.

With the goal of giving youth a voice and involving them in recording and commenting on their ethnic heritage and community, Ethnic Heritage Council is sponsoring its first Student Video Contest and Film Festival.

The contest offers seven cash awards: three $1,000 first place winners, three $500 second place winners, and one $500 People’s Choice Award. Videos are limited to three minutes based on one of three themes: What ethnic heritage means to you – past, present, future; What you love about your culture; Concerns and issues in your ethnic community.

The deadline to enter is September 15. Entry form and contest rules are at www.ethnicheritagecouncil.org

King County students in middle school, junior high and high school, and undergraduate students in King County colleges and universities are encouraged to enter. If lack of equipment is preventing participation, Ethnic Heritage Council has video cameras available for students to borrow to shoot their videos. Contact videocontest@ethnicheritagecouncil.org

The students’ videos will be showcased and the awards will be presented at the Ethnic Heritage Council Film Festival on November 13 at the Northwest Film Forum, Cinema 1 in Seattle.

The Ethnic Heritage Council Student Video Contest and Film Festival is sponsored by the King County Office of Equity and Social Justice, PEMCO Insurance, and the University-Ballard Lions Club.
