What Is IWitness?
The IWitness Video Challenge invites students in grades 6-12 to create social value in their community, guided by the theme “Ordinary People—Extraordinary Actions.” Drawing inspiration from video testimonies found on IWitness, students identify an issue that needs changing and then become motivated to take action. They document their journey by constructing a video essay that tells their personal story of how they went from connecting with the past to building a better future.
The winner will receive a trip to L.A. with his or her teacher, parent, or legal guardian to screen his or her video during the 20th anniversary celebration of Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List and the commemoration of USC Shoah Foundation—The Institute for Visual History and Education.
