Civic Life Project

Civic Life Project was founded by Emmy Award-winning filmmakers and educators to use the power of digital storytelling to engage and inform the next generation of citizens. Since its creation in 2010, Civic Life has overseen the production of more than 100 students produced films and has produced a yearly National Youth Film Challenge since 2015.

Democracy 2020 Youth Film Challenge

The Challenge is a unique bi-annual competition produced by the Civic Life Project. It invites students to generate civics-oriented videos that ultimately create a digital platform for young people to be heard on the issues that matter to them.
