If you've ever participated in the EYMF before, there are a couple of important differences this year:
- All submissions will be made online (no burning CDs or DVDs and delivering in an envelope).
- All submissions will be made from a Teacher or Parent/Guardian Google Drive with permissions set to "Anyone with the Link". See how to do that here.
- Music/Audio Category is now called Audio Storytelling and all submissions should be of students reading (or acting out) their own original work (hopefully with tons of expression and appropriate sound effects). The content can be fiction or non-fiction. See Media Categories for more details.
It's time for the 2016 Escondido Youth Media Festival (EYMF)! In its seventh year, EYMF is a celebration of the creativity and 21st Century skills of elementary and middle school students from the Escondido Union School District (EUSD). For times and venues, click here.
Produced by the Escondido Union School District, the Festival promotes students' work in their home community and on a global platform. Put simply, there is a lot of good news to share, and we want you to see it firsthand!
Why is the Festival important? EUSD already has exciting preliminary data indicating that students' Information, Communications, and Technology Literacy has a dramatic effect on their academic achievement. By creating Video, Photography, and Music/Audio Media, EUSD students develop skills and master educational content in ways that far exceed expectations.
