The Kansas City Program of the American Friends Service Committee invites school and youth programs working with high school-aged youth to participate in creative projects, which will use the arts to engage youth in issues of war, peace, economic justice and hope for the future.
If I Had A Trillion Dollars is a national youth video contest and film festival. We ask young people aged 10-23, "If YOU had the power to choose, how would you spend 1 trillion dollars? What could that money do for your family, for your community, for your nation, or for the world?"
Young people are directly affected by conversations about state and federal budgets, yet their voices are often ignored. The third-annual "If I Had a Trillion Dollars" national youth film festival seeks to change that.
It asks, “What would you do with $1 trillion—for yourself, your family, and your community?” Submissions are due Jan. 11, 2013.
