Due March 20th, 2019 - Create a video that highlights the importance of supporting the approach promoted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s “See Something, Say Something” Campaign.

Your Audience: Vermont students in high school and middle school.

Vermont high school and middle school students. You may submit an entry as a team of two or more students from your school’s video production or digital technology class. Students not enrolled in a formal video production program will need to form a partnership with students or teachers in a school-sanctioned program. Each program can submit no more than two entries. The prize amounts will be awarded directly to the school’s program, not to individual students. Teachers within the school’s program can distribute the funds at their discretion.

Each production will have one clear mission: Create a PSA to encourage students to talk with adults when they are aware of other students considering harming themselves or others. This PSA will support the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) “See Something, Say Something” campaign. As we know from recent police and media reports, two potentially tragic events were thwarted in Vermont, due to young people speaking up about a possible violent situation. The PSA should reflect the importance of a community caretaking approach in preventing violence in our schools and neighborhoods and in preventing self-harm and hazing/harassment/bullying in our schools. This PSA should portray students doing the “right thing” by looking out for other students and community members.

Students have creative license but must demonstrate good taste and remember that the video should be appropriate for young students. Do not create images of actual violence. Feel free to view other types of PSAs, including those produced by the Department of Homeland Security for adult viewers.

Entries must be either 25 or 55 seconds in length.
