Youth Making Ripples Film Fest March16 at Gleason Performing Arts Center
Liz Whitaker, a Master's student in Biology at FL Tech describes the film competition and the screening.

  Youth Making Ripples film festivals are free events that are open to the community as well as the general public. The film festival will kick off with a pre-viewing reception where Youth Making Ripples scientists and guests will showcase their research through hands-on interactive demonstrations and posters. Light snacks will be provided. Then we will show this year’s Youth Making Ripples finalist videos. Following the film presentation, we will have a short Q&A session with a panel of science related professionals.

RSVP’s are encouraged as seating is limited. Teachers interested in bringing their classes can also RSVP seats for their students.

If you have any Questions,  contact youthmakingripples@gmail.com.Youth Making Ripples Film Competition is an opportunity  for K-12 students (< 18 years of age) to use their creative talents and serve as a voice for our oceans. We encourage elementary, middle and high school students to create their own marine related film on a topic of their interest. All submission must be less than 5 minutes. The message of your film can focus on an interesting marine topic, a specific marine related problem or issue, or a call to action for conservation.
The Youth Making Ripples Competition student films debuted to the public in 2014. The competition was held at Florida Institute of Technology’s Gleason Performing arts center. Winners were selected by both 1) panel of scientific judges and 2) viewer’s choice award. We awarded many prizes to the winners!
