Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Any middle or high school student (grade 6-12, or the international equivalent) is free to enter. Students may be located anywhere in the world.

This is a high school and middle school student contest, and therefore, all of the research, writing, and editing should be done by students. If you want a parent or teacher to act in your film or hold the camera while you act, that is fine. However, you are the director of your film and all content should be yours alone.

There is no limit to the number of students who can work on a video. However, the video must be entered under one name ONLY (the Lead Producer). Recognition and prizes will be given to the lead producer and all those listed as co-producers on the entry form.

All videos should be entered in digital format. The Foundation will not accept audio-only recordings or videos recorded on VHS tapes.
