Submissions for the iHistory WW2 Contest is now up!

Are you a young aspiring filmmaker, or an educator looking for an interactive World War II history project?

The iHistory WW2 contest is a nationwide contest that connects teens (ages 13-18) with American World War II veterans in an effort to help teens gain a greater understanding and appreciation for history while expanding their skills in journalism and video technologies.

The iHistory WW2 contest is an excellent history project for teachers looking for creative and interactive methods to teach history.  The contest gives students the opportunity to film interviews with veterans and submit them to the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project.

Then the students will create a mini-documentary from the veterans’ interviews and submit them to the competition and have the chance to win coveted prizes for themselves and their school.  The Grand Prize winner and the winner’s school will each receive a package which includes a Blackmagic Cinema Camera with a Rokinon 35mm T1.5 Cine Lens!   The total value of combined prizes is over $11,000.

Submission dates for the contest are October 1 to November 20, 2013.  For more details about the contest visit: http://www.heroes-ww2.org or visit our Press page for additional materials.
