Last week we kicked off our #TBT Activities by introducing you to the IWitness Video Challenge. This week’s activity involves diving into the 4 C’s: Consider, Collect, Construct and Communicate.
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.
