Five Freedoms for Constitution Day
Each year the High School Broadcast Journalism Project hosts the Five Freedoms Public Service Announcement Contest, which challenges students to create an original Public Service Announcement that demonstrates the importance of the First Amendment. This video was last year's middle school Student Choice Winner and Judges' Award 2nd place.
■Class discussion: Over the last few years, newspapers have pushing more resources into multimedia as another way of telling stories online. Explore the current HSBJ video entries and discuss whether video is the best medium for making a point about the First Amendment. Who would your audience be? What message would you deliver? How would you storyboard your entry?
