RE@CH Media Festival public voting period ends Friday, March 20
Right now, many of us are stuck inside our homes. We’re all spending so much time in front of our screens, whether it’s working remotely, learning something new, educating our youth, keeping up with current events, or trying to give ourselves a break from the current state of affairs.
Now is a great time to support youth media.
There’s something therapeutic when young people create personal media that allows them to express themselves. We’ve witnessed, first hand, the profound impact this media can have on an audience. Without even trying, these RE@CH projects are spreading empathy and hope.
The Clubhouse Network’s Global RE@CH Media Festival (Revolutionizing Expression at The Clubhouse) encourages youth to express themselves about issues that are important to them by creating media that gives voice to their ideas, feelings, and concerns. Our members worked incredibly hard on their projects and it’s worth your time to explore and cast a vote.
There are 183 finalists in 12 categories: Documentary Video, Narrative Video, Music Video, Public Service Announcement Video, 360 Video, Cell Phone Video, Animation, Photography, Graphic Design, Music, Audio Perspective, and Scratch. There’s something for everyone.
Each finalist is eligible for two awards. A panel of judges that includes Clubhouse Alumni, corporate partners, and former Clubhouse staff, will decide the Judges’ Selection in each category. The Audience Award in each category will be decided by the broader community.
That’s where you come in! Visitors to the site will be able to view the media and vote for their favorite project in each category. You can vote once per category. The general public can vote through Friday, March 20, 2020 at clubhousereach.org.
When you find a project that speaks to you, whether or not you voted for it, share it on social media and tag it #ClubhouseREACH!
The Global RE@CH Media Festival leverages The Clubhouse’s unique learning approach, which is designed to empower youth from all backgrounds to become more capable, creative, and confident learners.
