2016 Video Contest
For three years running, NW-ARM has held a video contest for youth (ages of 13-18) who have something to say and need a bigger megaphone. In previous years, winning videos have focused on cyberbullying themes. This year, the contest was about breaking the media – an opportunity for students to question a media message, gain understanding of the production of media messages through editing, and create their own media messages right back.
