Election 2012: Special Opportunity for High School Students
Friday, July 27th, 2012 by Tom Martin
Submit your videos by October 1, and they could be featured on “Student Voices, Election 2012.” This special edition of Education Matters airs on KET October 11 at 8:00/7:00 pm CT, right before live coverage of the vice-presidential debate at Centre College.
“Student Voices” will feature a panel of high school students discussing election-year issues that affect young people. We’re looking for well-produced videos about one to three-minutes in length on topics that address student concerns and opinions related to the election. We hope to use several of these videos in the program.
For example, students might zero in on a single issue, such as college loans or the job market, and share their perspective. The videos could take the form of debates, opinion pieces, video diaries, or ….? Students can use their skill and creativity to make the videos interesting and relevant.
