Video Contest for Kids

Looking for something productive for the kids to do until school starts again?  Check out the Write it, Film it video contest being sponsored by Reading Rockets.  The contest web site reads:

‘Central casting’ at and Reading Rockets is looking for young, creative writers and filmmakers to participate in our Exquisite Prompt “Write It, Film It” Video Contest. Here’s your chance to flex your scriptwriting and film director muscles! We can’t promise a stroll down the red carpet on Oscar night, but we can promise a chance to win fabulous prizes and 15 minutes of fame on YouTube. Open to kids ages 7-18.

The site offers seven prompts the kids can choose from – basically a video assignment or challenge – and they have to write a script and produce a 3 minute video that meets the guidelines.  This is a great idea because it requires a bit of research, creative thinking, writing, and the most fun part – shooting and editing a video.  Hurry though – it ends Aug 30!
