Using digital video technology, tell us what your sex ed experience was like OR tell us how you would redesign sex ed for the future!
Was sex ed at your school a total drag or did you love it? If you had your choice, would you want a personal robot tutor or an online game you could play with other teens to learn about sex and its consequences?
RH Reality Check, in partnership with a dynamic group of progressive organizations, is hosting a digital video contest with two themes to choose from:
Theme 1. Share your sex ed experience so far. Show us how and why it sucked or rocked.
Theme 2. Redesign how sex ed could be delivered. Imagine that anything is possible.
First place wins a $3500 scholarship to the educational institution of your choice (or cash equivalent); second place wins $1000 cash; and third prize is your choice of a Nikon P5000, a Nintendo Wii or an iPhone!
Content and creative vision will be weighed more heavily than production quality. See the official rules for more details.
- Contest deadline is December 31, 2007.
- Entrants/Filmmakers must be between the ages of 15-30.
Read the Official Rules (PDF).
Create a video up to 3 minutes long that provides an entertaining, thought-provoking or otherwise interesting look at sex education today or what you'd like to see in the future.
Entries can feature humor, satire, music, discussion, dramatic portrayals, documentary style interviews, animation, information, lecture or other means of conveying the themes of the contest!
Video finalists will be featured at the Sex::Tech Conference: Focus on Youth, an inaugural STD/HIV Prevention Conference about youth and technology, January 22 - 23, 2008 in San Francisco, CA at SFSU's Institute for Next Generation Internet.

So if you're in that age range and you have anything to say about your experiences with sex ed, grab a camera and get rolling!
