KET Invites Student Videos of Election 2012

KET School Video Project: Election 2012

KET is inviting Kentucky K-12 students, classes, organizations, and clubs to upload a video and enter a drawing for a video production prize package!

Videos uploaded by October 1 could be featured on "Student Voices, Election 2012." This special edition of Education Matters is scheduled to air on KET October 11 at 8:00/7:00 pm CT, right before live coverage of the vice-presidential debate at Centre College.

"Student Voices" will feature a panel of high school students discussing election-year issues that affect young people. KET says,
We're looking for well-produced videos about one to three minutes in length on topics that address student concerns and opinions related to the election. We hope to use several of these videos in the program.
For example, students might zero in on a single issue, such as college loans or the job market, and share their perspective. The videos could take the form of debates, opinion pieces, video diaries, or ....? Students can use their skill and creativity to make the videos interesting and relevant.
On November 1st, KET will be giving away video production software and equipment including: a copy of Adobe Premiere Elements 10 editing software, a Smith-Victor tripod, a Canon HF-R20 camcorder, a portable greenscreen background, a softbox 3-light kit, a Shure microphone and cable, and an iPad teleprompter! It's a complete video production kit including what you need for greenscreen effects, so send us some video and win a great set of gear!
