One of the folks at Davis Art left a comment after my last post tipping me off to their video contest. First, there’s plenty of time to collect one of the $100, $300 or $500 prizes – April 15, 2008 is the deadline. Categories are Elementary School (K-5), Middle School (6-8), High School (9-12), Best of show, and Most compelling story with the simplest use of effects. I don’t know much about the company, but those last two categories and their process definitely set them apart. To enter the contest a student, under the guidance of a teacher or advisor, must go through an online, grade appropriate lesson and studio as well as completing all the steps in the e-portfolio. It should be a personal story of no more than two minutes. Emphasis is on 21st Century Skills and the National Art Standards.
