Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Any middle or high school student (grade 6-12, or the international equivalent) is free to enter. Students may be located anywhere in the world.

This is a high school and middle school student contest, and therefore, all of the research, writing, and editing should be done by students. If you want a parent or teacher to act in your film or hold the camera while you act, that is fine. However, you are the director of your film and all content should be yours alone.

There is no limit to the number of students who can work on a video. However, the video must be entered under one name ONLY (the Lead Producer). Recognition and prizes will be given to the lead producer and all those listed as co-producers on the entry form.

All videos should be entered in digital format. The Foundation will not accept audio-only recordings or videos recorded on VHS tapes.

No copyrighted materials (music, images, etc.) may be used for this contest unless you own the copyright or have a license to use the material for this contest. Written permission must be obtained and provided upon request for all copyrighted material

All entries must be uploaded by 5:00 pm (eastern time, US) on Thursday, February 27, 2020.

Finalists from each global challenge area will be notified by Monday, April 13, 2020. Reminder: a finalist is not a winner. Being chosen as a finalist means that your video was voted into the Top Ten and will go on to be judged by a panel of experts. There will not be a general announcement of finalists.
