My Hero Project film entries due
The MY HERO Project is looking for student reporters to create video stories about their heroes.
No experience is necessary; a team of award-winning documentary producers will help the young filmmakers tell their stories using state-of-the-art digital video equipment.
Five applicants will be chosen based on a short essay about their hero that they will submit through the MY HERO Create program, which guides them through text, images and links.
Students may also submit a short film, audio story or work of original art in addition to the essay.
