FS youth are invited to make a video profiling their D.C.-area community and schools to help future FS youth transition back to the area after living abroad (the videos will be posted on the FSYF website). The 8 to 12 minute-long narrated video should highlight the shopping, dining, transportation, and community life in a city or county (for exampled, Bethesda, D.C., or Alexandria) and describe it's schools (for example, availability of IB or AP classes, athletics, and extracurricular activities).
FSYF will commission one video per area. (We already have videos from Arlington, Falls Church, Stafford and Vienna in our library. So, if you live in one of these areas and would like to submit a video, please consider producing a video for a neighboring city.) If multiple applications are received from one area, the applicants will be asked to submit an outline of the proposed content of their video. FSYF will then select the best proposal.
$400 to be divided among members of each film-making team.
Deadline for Entry
- Application deadline is August 8,2016
- Videos must be submitted by September 5, 2016
This contest takes place during the summer months - giving FS youth ample time to film and edit their Welcome Home videos. If you are a current member of FSYF you may view the Welcome Home Video collection in the Members Only section of our website.
This program is made available through a generous grant from
the Una Chapman Cox Foundation.
