ANNOUNCING THE 2018-2019 STN COLLABORATIVE DOCUMENTARY:
Finding a Positive Mindset
Apply by November 30

Each year, STN students collaborate on a documentary project where several schools produce segments on a common topic.

We will be looking for stories that show how people exhibit traits consistent with a positive outlook despite factors that may interfere. 

There are many traits and characteristics associated with a positive mindset, including:

·         Optimism: a willingness to make an effort and take a chance instead of assuming your efforts won’t pay off. 

·         Acceptance: acknowledging that things don’t always turn out how you want them to, but learning from your mistakes.

·         Resilience: bouncing back from adversity, disappointment, and failure instead of giving up.

·         Gratitude: actively, continuously appreciating the good things in your life.

·         Consciousness/Mindfulness: dedicating the mind to conscious awareness and enhancing the ability to focus.

·         Integrity: the trait of being honorable, righteous, and straightforward, instead of deceitful and self-serving.

STN encourages students to tackle issues that can in some way effect change.  By working collaboratively, students will learn how to share responsibility for workflow and how to produce a piece that is required to fit in a larger project.  These are important skills for real-world employment and success. This is a great opportunity to learn more about documentary filmmaking while making a positive impact in our communities.
