Jeff Worthington of the Worthington Foundation has launched an iHistory WW2 Video Contest, a national competition to inspire teen filmmakers to capture stories from World War II veterans on film. There are 1.2 million World War II veterans still living today, but this generation is rapidly disappearing and their untold stories of bravery and sacrifice deserve to be heard.
The interviews will be preserved in the permanent archives at the Library of Congress, and the teens will have the chance to win coveted prizes for themselves and their school. Starting today, August 19, through November 20, 2013, aspiring young filmmakers (ages 13-18), can film interviews with WWII veterans about their experiences during the war.
Interviews meeting the minimum standards and guidelines will be archived at the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project (VHP). The VHP was launched in 2000 and, to date, has collected nearly 90,000 veterans’ oral histories, 30,000 of which are from WWII veterans. After the interviews have been submitted to the Veterans History Project, the students will enter the second phase of the Contest (beginning October 1) where they will compete for prizes.
Prizes valuing over $11,000 will be awarded to the top five films that demonstrate excellence in editing and creative storytelling. Contest winners will be announced in February 2014.
