Two upcoming summits are looking to give California students a chance to make their voices heard.
The Student Voices Campaign seeks to amplify student voices and provide a platform to explore the question, what could the world of tomorrow look like? The campaign invites students from grades seven to 12 to create short, original videos that show their vision for their school to share with the local school board, as part of the annual Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) planning process, according to the website. Deadline for submission has been extended to March 21.
This year, the California Alliance for Arts Education is partnering with the Youth Creativity Summit to bring winning videos and their creators to Los Angeles and Sacramento. According to a recent release, the Youth Creativity Summits will host hundreds of students and includes interactive workshops, performances, and resource tables for students to tap into continuing their creative learning and careers. The events will take place April 1 at B Street Theatre in Sacramento and April 26 at LA Community College in Los Angeles.
By submitting an entry, students have the opportunity to tell their story not only to school administrators, but also to working professionals, their peers, and a statewide audience, the release said.
