Create and submit a video showing the magical art of First Nation story telling. The video might show an elder telling a tall tale, a legend, or memories from the past. It might just show the person telling the story, or there may be “B roll” (background images and video) that helps bring images to the story.
Entrants must be from from an Atlantic First Nation community or be a Native student in a provincial school.
Native youth (age 15-29 inclusive with Native status card) who submit high-quality videos will be considered to have been “youth employees” during the project:
“Gold” exemplary videos = 40 hours *$11/hour = $440
“Silver” very good videos = 30 hours *$11/hour = $330
“Bronze” good potential = 20 hours *$11/hour = $220
Those schools that have students ineligible for youth employment payments (less than 15 years of age), the Help Desk will work with the school to purchase equipment to further the schools' multimedia efforts (expected maximum $1,000).
Exemplary videos may be selected for inclusion in the “Native Story Telling” iBook that will be complete by March, 2017. Full credit will be given to the story tellers and video production teams!
