All entrants must submit a non-fiction short film between 5-12 minutes in length, accompanied by an artist statement of no more than 300 words.

Palms for Life Fund is calling out to young filmmakers, 25 years of age and under, to visually depict in their communities the growing epidemic of hunger in the United States.

This national competition for documentary short films entitled “Faces of Hunger in America” intends to bring the issue of hunger onto the forefront of the nation’s radar screen while at the same time empowering our youth, the future generation of leaders and activists, to facilitate positive change and challenge antiquated principles.

Palms for Life Fund will offer the top three winners cash prizes of $5,000, $3,500 and $1,500, and give them exposure to a vast audience in a full-length compilation of the prize-winning works.

 

Using my Skills October 9, 2009

Recently, I have been made the ‘unoffical’ scholarship coordinator at my high school. Who better, as I know more about scholarships than anyone I know.
I currently have a list of scholarships I am eligible for and need to apply to, which is about 80 scholarships long.
Not to mention, a mere hour ago, I found a scholarship that is due today. Thanks to my amazing skills, I should be able to finish the essay in time.
If anyone needs any help with scholarships, feel free to post your problems here. Likewise, if you know of a scholarship, please feel free to share your information!
