KET School Video Project Challenge: My Kentucky Home

Our last KET School Video Project Challenge: My Kentucky Home, ran from November 22, 2016, through April 28, 2017.  A prize drawing for a free greenscreen/lighting kit was held on Monday, May 1 for schools who uploaded videos.  Kentucky public, private, and homeschools were eligible to participate.

Winner of the project’s prize drawing on May 1, 2017, was Ms. Crystal Neal, Library Media Specialist at Powell County Middle School.  Ms. Neal shared the excellent student-made documentary, Buzzing About Bees, about local bee farming and the importance of bees to plant pollination.

HOW TO JOIN AND UPLOAD to the KET School Video Project

KET’s My Kentucky Home video challenge was  a call for documentary-style student-produced videos about hometown environments and the people in them. It was an opportunity for students to investigate and share information about their local environments as classroom projects using multimedia.

Suggestions for video projects:

  • Stories about local places, people, or events
  • Community history documentaries
  • Interviews with community leaders
  • Interviews with citizens who can share memories of local life
  • Stories about famous or infamous local people or animals

See examples of past challenge videos at the KET School Video Project’s Videos page.

We hope your school will participate in our next KET School Video Project Challenge, to be added to the KET School Video Project website soon. Upload your student-produced videos and enter the drawing for a chance to win free video gear!
