The Center for Civic Education and its Project Citizen program is joining with Film Your Issue on the 2010 initiative in inaugurating a new award – a Film Your Issue-Project Citizen Public Policy Award.
Selected by the Center for Civic Education, the Film Your Issue-Project Citizen Public Policy Award will be awarded to a video that presents the best public policy solution to a public policy problem (including an explanation as to why the problem is best addressed by public policy).
The winner of the Film Your Issue-Project Citizen Public Policy Award winner will be flown by the Center for Civic Education to Los Angeles for the 2010 awards ceremony, co-hosted by Sony Pictures and Film Your Issue.
Winners will also be featured at the Center for Civic Education’s National Project Citizen Showcase at the Legislative Summit of the National Conference of State Legislatures in Louisville, Kentucky in July 2010.
The bi-partisan Center for Civic Education promotes the principles and practice of democracy in schools in the U.S. and abroad to more than 1.5 million annual participants worldwide.
