Are you a student filmmaker? Know someone who is?

We want your help.

If you’re a student, we want you to make a short film — and have the chance to show it right here at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for the first-ever White House Student Film Festival. If you’re a parent or a friend, pass this on to a student you know.

The topic? Technology in classrooms. There’s huge power in what technology can do for education — from taking a course online, to collaborating with students from across the country (or the world!).

We’re looking for awesome student filmmakers to show the power of technology in classrooms in a short film.

If that sounds like you — or someone you know — go to WhiteHouse.gov/Film-Festival and find out how you can participate.

But hurry! You’ve only got until January 29th to send in your submission. So if it’s going to get “two thumbs up,” you’d better start now.

Not a K-12 student? Forward this to someone who is:
