The Beneath the Waves – Youth Making Ripples Film Competition is an opportunity for K-12 students to use their creative talents and serve as a voice for our oceans. The Youth Making Ripples Competition student films will debut to the public on January 18th 2014. The competition will be held on Florida Institute of Technology’s main campus in the Gleason Performing arts center (6-8 pm).
Elementary, middle and high school students are encouraged to create their own marine related film on a topic of their interest. All submission must be less than 5 minutes. The message of your film can focus on an interesting marine topic, a specific marine related problem or issue, or a call to action for conservation. Winners will be selected by both 1) panel of scientific judges and 2) viewer’s choice award. Prizes will be awarded to the winners! We can’t wait to see what you create!
