Happy Thursday or should I say #TBT
Social media lights up every Thursday with nostalgia. Granted, sometimes it’s a throwback to last month or even two days ago, but people all over the world reflect on and decide to repost a historical moment, personal or otherwise. We believe that reflecting on past events can help inspire a better future. That’s one of the many reasons we partnered with the USC Shoah Foundation for the IWitness Video Challenge.
Over the next several Thursdays, we’ll highlight a #TBT Activity for your class and showcase previous winners. Think of it as a jump start for positive change. Through the IWitness Video Challenge, students will find inspiration from the voices in IWitness to create positive change in their own community. More than $10,000 in prizing from Ford Motor Co. will be awarded to students, teachers and schools who submit winning video essays about their experience.
Who Can Participate?
Any student in 5th – 12th grades can take part in the IWitness Video Challenge. These #TBT Activities will be a perfect place to get you students started.
