Subject: [oasl-all] Student Creativity Opportunity: Corona Multimedia Showcase

Please see the attached information and message below from Marilyn Cohen of Action for Media Education regarding an opportunity for students to submit creative works for the online Corona Multimedia Showcase. Here is an introduction from the attached press release:

§  “If we could ask kids around the world what they’re thinking and feeling right now, what would they say? Action for Media Education (AME) is inviting young people from 3-19 and their families to participate in an international online exhibit of creative work that reflects their lives in this time of COVID-19.”

The deadline to submit entries is October 9th. Please feel free to share this information with students and teachers.

We're hoping young people in Oregon will be interested in participating in the Corona Multimedia Showcase<https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fcoronashowcase.org%2F&data=02%7C01%7CJenny_Takeda%40beaverton.k12.or.us%7Cc2e11d7a9add4274d8b008d82e7ffb72%7Cdad3a7f1762644ef91ef1a84d811010b%7C0%7C0%7C637310475423731366&sdata=7q7vKGVPzWwlIS7qZILRQ3J6CGw%2BDf4rRVY8Zs%2FSiiQ%3D&reserved=0>.

The deadline for the Showcase has been extended to October 9th. I'm sending along a flyer with the new deadline and a press release with our new date.  Also I'm including the Spanish version of our flyer.

A Seattle Times article <https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.seattletimes.com%2Flife%2Fcorona-multimedia-showcase-seeks-to-display-kids-creative-projects-made-during-the-pandemic%2F&data=02%7C01%7CJenny_Takeda%40beaverton.k12.or.us%7Cc2e11d7a9add4274d8b008d82e7ffb72%7Cdad3a7f1762644ef91ef1a84d811010b%7C0%7C0%7C637310475423741361&sdata=505copjN%2F53npQke27xWWCpPgB8YKeS9QZF7Jt13znI%3D&reserved=0>  appeared last week about the Showcase. I thought you might find this article of interest.

Thanks so much for anything you can do to help spread the word in your state. We would love to encourage children and families from Oregon to participate.

Best wishes,
