We are seeking videos made by Kentucky K-20 students, classes, organizations, and clubs:
School news programs and stories, public service announcements, documentaries, art/music videos, classroom project videos, training/tutorial videos, anything you and your students are making that you'd like to share!

Student-produced videos can be useful as instructional tools and are positive examples of blending technology and Core Content in the classroom for inspiring, project-based learning. They can be viewed from a variety of perspectives:
- standards-based instruction
- examples of ways to embed standards within video production units
- instructional tools or how-to guides for video production
- sources of inspiration for new lessons or units
- sources of ideas for video projects or documentaries, especially ones with local color, interest, and/or historical significance
- instructional openings for discussing health and other safety issues, including public service announcements
- examples of formats, features, and interviews for expanding or updating news programs
