PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR!
OUR ADDRESS IS:
PO BOX 2752
CARLSBAD, CA 92018
Any mail sent to our old address will be returned and will delay your membership, contest entry, convention registration, etc. The old address (Loker Ave.) is no longer in business and will not accept any STN mail.
If you renewed your membership for 2017-2018 after March 7, your membership is good through June 30, 2019. Membership dates will auto-correct on July 1, 2018 based on our fiscal year system.
- Individual Affiliate Schools - $75. Individual schools may have any number of students and teachers per program. However, there is no "district rate" so individual classes and schools must each join separately.
- STN offers dual memberships to schools with specific needs beyond that which can be fulfilled with one membership. Here are the examples of dual memberships:
- School has a separate and distinct program for film AND another one for broadcast journalism. Each one is run by a different, documented teacher.
- School has more than one program track – possibly a track that meets every day and produces a daily or weekly show and an after-school program that produces a monthly show.
- School has different divisions – for example, one is an elective and the other is an after-school club.
If you wish to have a dual membership, you must submit the request to firstname.lastname@example.org before you go online to register. A response may take up to 10 days.
Schools with dual memberships must follow these rules:
- Limit contest entries to your designated area: broadcast or film (we understand there is some overlap in contests)
- Each membership must have a distinct name to avoid confusion
You will have access to the STN ListServ with online discussions and sharing among teachers. You can post a question and get answers from your peers.
STN has developed curriculum materials available to affiliate members, including lesson plans and online video training complete with study guides and quizzes. You will also have access to the STN Video Vault where you can upload B-roll segments and search for footage to use in your own work.
Your membership allows your students to enter the various film, video and broadcast journalism contests that STN hosts throughout the year. Every contest is returned with a critique from a professional in the industry. All of this done online through the STN Dashboard.
Of course, one of the biggest benefits is the opportunity to attend the STN Convention where more than 3,000 students and teachers come together for four days of education, interaction and competition. Next year, we will be in Seattle, Washington March 28-31. The convention includes more than 60 free professional sessions and more than 20 onsite contests. It’s a one of a kind event – memorable for all and life-changing for some.
STN will produce a collaborative documentary with several schools participating in the final program. It’s a chance for students to work together for a common goal and understand the collaborative process of production. Last year, 4 schools took part in this project to produce the film, Tenacious Teens: Don't Underestimate Us, with excerpts from various cities.
We have recently expanded our reach internationally and we are working with schools in Russia and China. We recently took groups of students from STN schools to Russia to interact and work with Russian students. We hope to see many international students at our 2019 convention.
Member schools may submit credentials for Honor Society, Student of the Year and Teacher of the Year Awards.
STN ASSOCIATES - $100 (changing shortly to $50) STN Associates are those persons interested in involvement in STN Activities but not currently teaching. This may include retired teachers and alumni. Full membership benefits, such as contest entry, are not included in this membership category.
ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP INCLUDES:
Access to online curriculum, documents and video.
Opportunity to attend the STN Convention
