Are you looking for a way to challenge your students to be creative and innovative?
The IWitness Video Challenge is the perfect way to inspire your students to do just
Oskar Schindler’s extraordinary act did not start off that way. It came about in
a hundred small, ordinary actions that culminated in something extraordinary. IWitness
contains thousands of voices – voices of ordinary people, who, like Oskar Schindler,
did ordinary things, and in doing so made the world a better place.
During the 20th Anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s Oscar winning film, Schindler’s
List, the USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education
is sponsoring the IWitness Video Challenge. The Institute invites students from
all over North America to be inspired by the voices in IWitness, to use their innovation
and creativity to create positive value in their communities by doing something
ordinary (or extraordinary), and then asks them to build a video telling the story
about how they contributed to making their communities a better place.
