Inspired by the Vermont Movie ProjectFREEDOM & UNITY YOUNG FILMMAKER CONTEST invites young Vermont and New Hampshire residents to create films exploring the life and culture of the Green Mountain and Granite States. Through film, young people explore the issues that they find meaningful, make connections between the past and the present, and share their personal stories. They build filmmaking and communication skills while learning more about themselves and the states they call home.  At the screening and awards ceremony, young filmmakers gather to meet and learn from each other. One remarkable result of this project is the weaving together of many perspectives and stories. Winners receive cash prizes made possible by the Stettenheim Foundation and the Jamie Kanzler Award. The contest is judged in two groups, middle school (6-8 grades) and high-school (9-12 grades), and in three categories, or topics. Personal Stories, History and Contemporary Issues, and Arts and Culture.
