Every year, the Youth Free Expression Program invites young filmmakers to create a short film on a contemporary First Amendment issue. Over the past 15 years, the YFEP Film Contest has showcased the films of dozens of teens whose vision and respect for free expression will inspire generations to come.

Youth Free Expression Scholarship
This year, we want teen filmmakers (age 19 and younger) to SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER!
In homage to Sheryl Oring's I Wish To Say project, create a 4-minute film "postcard" with an important social message you believe has gone unheard (or silenced) by those in power.
Include an artist's statement articulating your film's message and identifying the public official or organization you believe should hear it.
Be thoughtful. Be creative. Be original. Be uncensored.
