Know a high schooler? Ask them "What would you do with one trillion dollars to better your community?" The US spends one trillion dollars on military spending, including funding the war in Afghanistan while education and healthcare are underfunded. This is a great way for students to raise awareness in their community and strategize ways to better their community. The top three videos will be chosen by judges and students can win $250, $500, or $1000 scholarships. Please inform students or student groups of this opportunity and tell them to watch for the call for submissions in Fall 2015. They can submit and register at http://www.wnpj.org/video. We look forward to your submissions!
Look for more information about the 3rd Annual Growing a Peaceful Future Film Festival soon. We will be showcasing the finalists for the contest, presenting the scholarships, voting on the people's choice award, having good food, building community, and taking pictures on the red carpet in Spring 2016!
