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

_________

2019-2020 COLLABORATIVE DOCUMENTARY

The Power of Social Media--the Good, the Bad, the Ugly

STN will be looking for stories that show the positives and negatives of how people are using social media in their lives and communities. 

Students at STN schools are invited to fill out the Producer Application with their pitch idea and send a link to their video pitch by the deadline.  One Student Producer from each school will be the responsible party for the work but they must have a teacher adviser invested in the project.

One Student Producer from each school accepted for the project will be given free registration to the STN Convention ($100 value) in Washington DC.  Travel, hotel and all other costs will be the responsibility of the Producer. Producers not attending the convention will receive a prize.
