Teens Invited to Show Creativity in Video Contest

March 6, 2012
Are you the type of individual that likes to think out of the box?   Discover new philosophies; yet love that artistic retro look? Junior High and High School students who are Arlington Heights residents have an opportunity to show off their creative talents and help spread the message of the Arlington Heights 125-year anniversary, or Quasquicentennial event, by entering the Youth Commission’s VAH 125 Teen Video Contest.
We are looking for students, working in teams, who enjoy being creative, to participate in this video contest. One adult is needed on each team to help guide and inspire the students. This adult can be anyone with creativity, including a teacher, parent, or friend. All team members must be Arlington Heights residents in order to participate and each member must fill out an entry form.
Videos should be no longer than 3 minutes and will be posted on the Village’s YouTube account that will be created to specifically showcase this video project. The Quasquicentennial Celebration theme is Honor the past, Celebrate the Present,  Explore the Future. Young filmmakers entering this contest are asked to develop videos based on the theme of “exploring the future of Arlington Heights.”  Thinking about what you have learned from the past, what you know now, and how do you see the future of Arlington Heights!
Any form or style is allowable including; animation, photos, acting, dancing, or singing, as long as it falls into the parameters determined by the Village of Arlington Heights and the Youth Commission. The winning videos will be run on the village’s web site and local cable channels. All applications are due by April 15. The deadline for video submissions is April 15 - June 15, 2012.
