VIDEO CONTEST: Here’s a video contest for your students from the League of Women Voters. I think it was just posted so the FAQ page seems to be not updated. Maybe it will be updated later this week, but the deadline is March 1.


PSTV Internship – Are you interested in an internship. PSTV is looking for interns to work on dedicated projects that we have in the pipeline. The program is currently open to 5-7 students who can start in January, equipment training will happen based on student schedules. If interested contact  This is a program that will be hands on and you will be able to create projects that you can add to your portfolio.


CREATE a PSA – The US Navy is changing the way we reach out to those interested in joining. Instead of “brick and mortar” offices, where applicants speak face to face with a Navy Recruiter, we are using the Cyber World to communicate with our Future Sailors. In the Philadelphia area, our recruiting stations will be closed and students who want to speak with a recruiter will contact them via Facebook, Skype, Twitter etc. All paperwork will be completed online and face to face interviews will be at a minimum.

We need to communicate this new process to the students, parents and educators of the Philadelphia School District. To do this we want to create a video to be used on the school district’s media networks, to inform our market of the change in our recruiting methods. Who better to assist us with this project than you – the “Cyber Citizens”. Your input can help us create the most effective means of grabbing the attention of our main market – your fellow students!

We need students who can help us produce, direct, and edit a 30 – 60 second video. We want to hear your ideas on imagery, content and production values. If you are interested, contact

Students who choose to submit entries based on #BeThe1To messaging are eligible to have their submissions distributed nationally. Additionally, thanks to the Lifeline, public voting will be communicated to over 200,000 people across the country; meaning that all submissions which are chosen as finalists will have their PSA displayed on a national level.
