Acts of Valor Video Contest
June 28, 2016
Calling all creative high school and college students!
World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument and Pacific Historic Parks are looking for submissions for a video contest called “Acts of Valor.” We want to hear the untold stories of your friends and family members and how they experienced the Pacific War.
The Acts of Valor project gives young people a chance to create lasting mementos of their family member or friend’s experience of the Pacific War, share his or her story, and preserve the memory for future generations.
We are looking for videos between one and three minutes long that tell the story of one person who lived through the Pacific War. Please incorporate the theme of this year’s 75th Commemoration of the Pearl Harbor attack: “Honoring the Past, Inspiring the Future.”
The contest is open to high school and college students. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 31, and we’ll announce our top finalists on Nov. 11. These videos will then be posted on YouTube, and the public will vote for the video of their choice.
The first place winner will receive a $1,000 grand prize; second place, $750; and third place, $250. Winners will be announced on Dec. 1.
