National Teen Video Contest: Love - All That and More

FaithTrust Institute is excited to announce a national video contest for teens and youth ministries to contribute to FaithTrust Institute’s award winning teen curriculum Love – All That and More.

FaithTrust Institute is excited to announce a national video contest for teens and youth ministries to contribute to FaithTrust Institute’s award winning teen curriculum Love – All That and More.

Love – All That and More is a DVD curriculum designed for high school age youth and has been used around the country for more than 20 years. It covers the central issues relating to healthy teen relationships and dating violence prevention. This program promotes safe, healthy relationships and supports teens in taking action to overcome violence and abuse.

This is an outstanding resource and you can help make it even better. We’re inviting teens to create original short videos to be added as supplemental material to this nationally implemented training curriculum. This is a chance for your voice to be heard by communities nationwide who are working to create healthy teen relationships.

VIDEO CONTENT REQUIREMENTS

Your video must fit into one of these two categories.

Theme One: Gender Stereotypes in the Media

Mass media (television, film, radio, music, etc.) have made some progress in the last 20 years regarding stereotypes of men as emotionally shallow action heroes and women as submissive sex objects. But these stereotypes are still present in the media and promote unrealistic expectations for men and women in relationships, which can create unequal power and abuse in dating relationships.

Your Challenge:

Create a video that exposes this problem and provides images of healthy role models and relationships.

Theme Two: Technology/Social Media

Cell phones, Facebook, and other technology and social media have given people in abusive relationships new tools to get support and help, but also given abusers more ways to control and abuse.

Your Challenge:

Create a video that demonstrates how technology is used for control and abuse, and then show how those same tools can be used to seek help, to access resources, and to get out of an abusive relationship.

ELIGIBILITY

Teens aged 13-19 in middle school, high school, and college can enter the contest. Any individual or group of people within this age range may enter this contest.
