The inside scoop on a new video competition

Human rights activist  and Shanker Award winner Kerry Kennedy gave delegates a scoop Thursday night, sharing the news that NYSUT and the RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights will be partnering on a new initiative — a video competition for student filmmakers that will commence in the next academic year.

Students will be invited to submit original works that carry forward the theme, “Speak Truth to Power,” which is also the title of lessons developed by NYSUT and the RFK Center in alignment with New York State academic standards.

Kennedy’s announcement was received with excitement by delegates, especially when she said the Tribeca Film Festival will screen the winning student entry!

Details are still being developed, so stay tuned.
