A short, one-minute promotional video on FIRE and its issues has been added to our ever-expanding Multimedia page. The video—a visual depiction of those whose freedom of speech has suffered—was produced and edited by Chris Wetzel, a student at Ohio Northern University.
If you are interested in making your own video on free speech issues on campus, be sure to enter FIRE’s first annual "Freedom on Campus" video contest. Students have until May 15, 2009, to get their submissions to FIRE. The winner will receive a $5,000 scholarship and two runners-up will receive $1,000. Winners will also receive exposure on FIRE’s website and will be invited to attend the 2009 Campus Freedom Network conference with all expenses paid. Learn more about the contest here.
Thanks to Chris for allowing us to display his video on our website!
