More information about the 2017 Video Contest:

WHAT: Arizona high school students can win cash prizes by creating a short video which explores how a rapidly growing human population may impact the world, Arizona, or the student’s future quality of life. The world has added a billion people since today’s high school seniors entered first grade. Arizona’s population has grown by one third during their lives; another 100,000 Arizona residents are expected in 2016. International and local population growth will impact the lives of today’s high school students (our background materials describe some of those changes). The videos should show how population growth may change your future.

WHEN: Entry deadline for the 2017 competition has passed. Please stay tuned for more information about 2018.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE? Entrants must be Arizona residents who are at least 14 years old and are enrolled in an accredited Arizona high school. Students being home-schooled with approval from their local school district, during the 2017-2018 school year, are also eligible.

VIDEO DETAILS: Videos must be less than 2 minutes in length and comply with contest rules.

PRIZES: Separate prizes were awarded in a freshman category and an upper class category. First place winners in each category will receive $500. Second prize will be $300 and third prize will be $200. There will be 8 Honorable Mention awards of $100 each in the freshman category and another 8 Honorable Mention awards in the upper class category. Winning videos will be eligible for posting on Population Media Center’s website. A $500 prize will also be awarded to the school department with best participation.
