WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- High school and middle school students throughout Westchester County are invited to create videos that show the world in which they want to live.
This United Nations Association's "The World I Want" video contest will allow students to illustrate their ideas of how the world should be and incorporate U.N. values, such as the importance of humanitarian aid, equal rights and global peace that demonstrate how the U.N. as a whole or through one of its programs provides inspiration to the people of the world today.
Six winners will be selected: a first-, second- and third-place for high school students and a first-, second- and third-place for middle school students.
Each first-place winner will receive the grand prize of a private tour of the United Nations headquarters in New York City and receive the award at a benefit dinner in December.
Winners also will receive a gift of $250 for first place, $150 for second place and $75 for third place, and the winners will have their videos displayed on the United Nations Association Southern New York State Division website. All entrants will receive a certificate of participation.
Deadline for submission is Sept. 30. Guidelines, the application form, parental/legal guardian permission forms, permission forms for students 18 or 18+, and consent forms for photos/audio-visual/and copyright materials are available here.
