One of the newest additions to the Project on Racism contest is a Five Minute Film Contest. We are giving all the students the opportunity to create a film of five (5) minutes or less in length that is inspired by or has a theme based in this year’s quote. 

QUOTE“We will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”   -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

The film’s director(s) and actors must have been in high school, Middle school, or Elementary school while filming the project. This is a state wide film competition and thus accepts films from anywhere in  WV, as long as, you were in grades 1 through 12 when you made the film.
