The WVU Reed College of Media is looking for innovative students and teachers in high schools who are working to make their communities a better, stronger place. Are you involved in a project at a central or southern West Virginia high school that is giving back to the community and needs to be celebrated and supported? If so, we would like to help you tell that story.
In Spring 2017, a team of faculty and students from the College will be selecting three projects that are worthy of recognition and in need of funding to be sustainable. If your project is selected, we will tell your story in a virtual reality documentary that will reach an audience outside the community. Our team will also create an online donation site and will help you raise funds to continue the project into the future.
Examples of projects that would be considered might include things like a house-building projects that include vocational training components, clubs or organizations that encourage young entrepreneurs in a manner that stimulates economic development in the community, or initiatives that concurrently help students develop career skills while stimulating civic engagement.
Interested applicants should submit information using this form. Be sure to include contact information including high school name, phone number, email address and teacher/staff name.
