What is it?

An opportunity for Davis students, grades K through 12, to spotlight their creativity by producing 90-second (or shorter) Public Service Announcement videos. Working in groups of up to four, students can either work under the guidance of staff members from Davis Media Access at one of two workshops, or can produce the videos on their own. Entries must be submitted to Davis Media Access by May 7, 2010.

Who can enter?

Any Davis resident in grades K through 12 can enter with their parent or guardian’s permission.

What do the judges want to see?

Videos should focus on awesome activities or programs in the Davis Schools that funding from the Davis Schools Foundation will help to save.   Challenge your parents to donate to what you care about.  For more information about Davis Schools Foundation, visit:
