Film Your Voice Scholarship (Closed)

Do you spend more time taking pictures on your phone than talking on it? Is your Facebook wall full of videos you make with your friends? And do you think that poetry is a whole lot more than writing down words in your notebook?

The Film Your Voice Scholarship is all taking your words off the page and onto the screen. Power Poetry has partnered up with the Children’s Media Project to reward one Power Poet with $1,000 (for college tuition) for his/her multimedia work. Make sure to (1) register as a user, (2) read our guide to creating multimedia poetry, and, (3) upload your video by January 31st, 2013.
