Due March 23rd, 2020 - Select a Human Rights Defender from the STTP Curriculum or choose a local Defender from your community who has worked to defend, promote, protect or advance human rights locally, nationally, or internationally. You can also find a list of Defenders on the main contest page.

That utilizes creative storytelling to teach others about a human rights issue, and follow the submission guidelines below. The format is open to documentary, stop motion, narrative, digital photo essay or other innovative explorations. Submit your video on our website! Contest winners will be announced at the end of March 2020, and the winning video will premier at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City! Spread the word about the contest through Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to let everyone know how art can create a more just and peaceful world!

Films should creatively answer the following questions:
  *What is the human rights issue?
  *How did the STTP Defender attempt to improve the situation?
  *What is the connection between your chosen defender and the work of RFK? (students can use quotes, archival footage or include a connection in the film’s narration)
  *How does the HR issue relate to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights?
  *How is this work connected to the student's local community?
  *What is the current status of the HR issue?
  *What can the activist's life teach us?
