Want to provide a chance for your afterschool group to learn about important current issues while utilizing technology and thinking creatively?
If so, you’ll want to take advantage of the video contest Population Connection is hosting for high school students. Students are challenged to create a 30-45 second video Public Service Announcement (PSA) that illustrates the connection between world population at seven billion and one of the following three topics: food security, the global status of women and girls, or wildlife habitat. Students can work by themselves or in a group, and there are cash prizes of up to $1,000 for the winners in each of the three topics. Participating teachers are also eligible to receive free curriculum resources.
