Newseum Video Contest: ‘How Is Your Campus Protecting Free Expression?’

By August 18, 2016

The Newseum Institute is hosting a competition for video submissions highlighting how colleges and universities can effectively encourage debate on today’s most contentious social issues and protect students’ right to free speech.

With campuses around the country making news for the restriction of speech rights, the Newseum says the “competition hopes to highlight your school’s preservation of those rights in the hopes that others will follow.”

Videos should be three minutes or less, and the deadline is September 30.

Winning submissions will be displayed at the Newseum (ranked by TripAdvisor as one of Washington, D.C.’s top 10 attractions) in November, and up to two student producers per video will get an expenses-paid trip to Washington for the event.

To read the full competition rules or to enter a video, see the details over on the Newseum Institute website.

FIRE can’t wait to see the winners.
