STN is proud to announce the release of the Video Vault, a master database within the STN website that will connect schools across the country. Schools with STN memberships will be able to upload their videos and download the videos of any school in the STN universe. Students and teachers get complete access to this database as one of the many benefits of their STN membership. 

The Video Vault will act as a source for free footage, including full-length feature stories, Public Service Announcements, B-roll footage, and more. Students and teachers across the country can stop endless searches for video content to use in their programs. Many online video providers require payment for downloads. All videos in the Video Vault are free and easy to download. Additionally, the Video Vault is navigable, with a streamlined search process. Users can narrow their searches down by category or keywords. This will be extremely helpful with the immense amount of videos that will be stored in the Vault.
