Kids Video Contest: Summer in My Town

Posted on July 2, 2008 at 8:00 am

The virtual field trip website MeetMeAtTheCorner.org is challenging kids to create a video documentary of a special summertime event in their hometown.
The “Summer in My Town” video documentary contest is for children ages 7-13. The winner will receive a cash prize of $250.00 plus a special airing of the video on the Web site this fall. The contest deadline is August 31, 2008 and all films must be submitted on MiniDV tape.
Complete information on how to make a video documentary, including step-by-step instructions on creating storyboards and voiceovers, as well as submission guidelines, rules and forms can be found at MeetMeAtTheCorner.org. Final cassette tapes can be mailed to Meet Me at the Corner “Summer in My Town” Video Contest, 1710 First Ave., PO Box 283, New York, NY 10128. All submissions are the property of Meet Me at the Corner and will not be returned.
“The ‘Summer in My Town’ contest is a great way for kids to learn how to make a complete documentary-style video and discover more about their community. It’s not a way to share summer vacation videos. It’s so much more than that. It’s the perfect way for kids to reveal their special part of the world with their peers,” said Donna Guthrie, founder of MeetMeAtTheCorner.org.
