Trenton students to participate in film festival

Trenton middle and high students will compete in the DC Film Festival to promote good digital citizenship.

Teams of up to three students can enter the contest to create original videos. The categories are “Think Before You Share,” “Protect Your Stuff,” “Know and Use Your Settings,” “Avoid Scams,” and “Be Positive.”

In addition to researching their selected subject, students will learn about copyright and consent from all talent appearing in their videos. The videos will be used as instructional tools to encourage students to think about their presence in the digital world and understand how to become better digital citizens.

Winning videos will be available for viewing on the Trenton R-9 school website with an entry deadline of January 17th.

All students who participate by submitting a film for judging, will be invited to attend the digital citizenship film festival on Friday, January 20 when all videos get reviewed, door prizes awarded and contest winners announced.

The Film Festival was sponsored by Trenton High School Key Club with assistance from Technology Integration Coach Taya Ray.

Key Club is sponsored locally by the Trenton Kiwanis Club and is under the direction of faculty advisor E’Lisha Gass and Kiwanis advisor Kara Helmandollar.
