1. Create a documentary film or social media campaign on justice issues important to you and your community.
Documentary films (any length up to 8 minutes): What issues do you believe should be addressed by 2020 candidates? Topics like racism, voter suppression, civil rights, police brutality, immigration, mass incarceration, gun control, and LGBTQ rights are just some examples. Your submission should motivate your peers to engage in national elections.
Social media campaigns (no longer than 2 minutes and must have a “Call to Action” to vote): We challenge you to measurably increase the youth vote in 2020. You are free to use animation, documentary, interviews, and testimonials. Create your video using your favorite social media platform. Make it funny or make it poignant, make it sad or hopeful, but make it count!
BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR WORK, BE SURE TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE CIVIC LIFE PROJECT WEBSITE.
2. Submit your film.
The deadline to submit your entries has been extended to August 14, 2020.
