If I Had A Trillion Dollars Film Festival

The National Priorities Project (NPP) and the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) joined together to sponsor the “If I Had A Trillion Dollars” (IHTD) youth film festival to help integrate the voices and ideas of young people into the nation’s budget debate.  As revenue and spending decisions made at the federal level disproportionately affect young people, the festival is geared toward educating and inspiring young people to engage in civic activism.

Beneath the Waves - Youth Making Ripples Contest

The Beneath the Waves – Youth Making Ripples Film Competition – is an opportunity  for K-12 students (< 18 years of age) to use their creative talents and serve as a voice for our oceans. We encourage elementary, middle and high school students to create their own marine related film on a topic of their interest. All submission must be less than 5 minutes. The message of your film can focus on an interesting marine topic, a specific marine related problem or issue, or a call to action for conservation.
