Kaleidoscope Video Challenge 2011

This year, the Kaleidoscope Video Challenge is giving globally-engaged youth the opportunity to show how they are Global Citizens, through the medium of video.  MCIC is asking youth between 8 and 18 to grab their cell phone, camera or video camera and film a short video explaining how they are making our world a better place.   Do you know a youth who is…

In the Environmental Club at school?

Volunteering with a local organization?

An artist or writer who is concerned about the world?

Interested in writing to their local Member of Parliament?

Helping with issues like poverty, human rights, climate change, social justice, and the environment?

Ask them to create a video, under 5 minutes in length, about how they are involved in global issues. They can submit their video online before March 31, 2011 for a chance to win a video camera (or equivalent cash prize of $500) and a trip to Ottawa to participate in our national youth conference!

The Kaleidoscope Real World Video Challenge is a contest organized by MCIC in Manitoba and run nationally in conjunction with the other provincial and regional councils.  For more information, examples of past winning entries and to apply, check out www.videochallenge.ca or contact Sumeep Bath, Public Relations Coordinator at MCIC at pr@mcic.ca or (204) 987-6420.
