Due March 20th, 2017 - Sponsored by the American Federation of Teachers, Tribeca Film Institute and the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights and based on Kerry Kennedy's book Speak Truth To Power, this competition for middle and high school students encourages teens to become engaged in human rights through video production.

Contest participants must choose a human rights defender and create a 3-5 minute video short film. Judges are looking for student films that utilize creative storytelling to teach others about a human rights issue. The format is open to documentary, stop motion, narrative, digital photo essay or other innovative explorations that involve filmmaking components.

Your film must creatively answer the following questions:
   * What is the human rights issue?
   * How did the STTP Defender attempt to improve the situation?
   * How the issue connected with 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?
