Youth Free Expression Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 3


Every year, the Youth Free Expression Program (YFEP) invites young filmmakers to create a short film on a contemporary First Amendment issue. This year, the topic for the Youth Free Expression Film Contest is BODY LANGUAGE.

Freedom of expression is about more than our words: how we dress, do our hair, or even dance all allow us to express who we are and what we believe. Yet, US public schools often limit students' ability to express themselves through their appearance. All kinds of stylistic expression (hats, mini skirts, tattoos, etc.) are off-limits at one public school or another. But punishment is disproportionately targeted at students who don't conform to traditional gender expression. In some schools, girls have been banned from wearing tuxedos in the school yearbook, in others, boys haven't been allowed to wear earrings. And the problem appears to be growing.

Create a video (up to 3 minutes) using film, animation, photographs, music, or anything else to show the importance of expressing one's gender and identity through personal appearance.

Be thoughtful. Be creative. Be original. Be uncensored.
