Youth Against Gun Violence Scholarship Film Contest
January 30, 2020
Young people are among those most impacted by gun violence in the United States. In 2017, 3,443 children and teens died from gunfire in suicides, homicides, and unintentional deaths. That same year, 18,227 Americans under the age of 20 were injured by guns. The goal of the Violence Policy Center’s (VPC) Youth Against Gun Violence Scholarship Film Contest is to not only create a platform for youth and young adult voices to be heard on gun violence and ways to help prevent it, but also support participants’ continuing education.
Possible topics for submissions can include, but are not limited to: personal experiences with gun violence; gun violence in the individual’s community; the ways in which gun violence affects our nation; or ways that we can work to prevent gun violence on the local, state, or national levels.
