The New Jersey Mini-Documentary Challenge
for Grade 6-12 Students
NJECC, the statewide leader in leading, inspiring and transforming education through technology is proud to offer our first annual New Jersey Mini-Documentary Challenge for Grade 6-12 students.
The 2022 Mini-Documentary Challenge Topic:
Better Together - A COVID Success Story in Your Community
COVID-19 has disrupted our daily life and put a strain on families, schools, businesses, healthcare systems, and communities in general. While there have been many losses and tragic stories resulting from COVID’s harsh impact on our communities, there also have been several positive narratives and silver linings breaking through the darkness of this pandemic. Our challenge to you is to identify and tell one small but amazing story that highlights how your local community came together to overcome COVID’s impact over the past two years.
Students and their teachers/advisors from any New Jersey public, charter or private school in the following grade level bands may submit an entry for this FREE challenge to be judged by an industry documentary director using the the following linked rubric
