100 for 100 Video Contest
Join the #Rebuild100 100 for 100 Video Challenge! What does rebuilding America look like to you? Show us an innovative idea for reimagining the future of your community.
We’re curating the best 100 ideas for social change from young people for the first 100 days of the Biden administration -- and we’re giving prizes for young people with the top submissions. The first place video submission will receive a cash prize of $100 and the top five runners-up will receive a $10 UberEats card along with recognition on Peace First’s platform. All submissions are eligible for social media features on Peace First’s international platform, as well as the opportunity to receive up to $250 in mini grant funding to put your idea into action.
Want to get started? It’s easy to submit a video. Here’s what you need to do:
Record a video of up to 60 seconds.
Post it to your public TikTok or Instagram.
Tag us @peacefirstorg AND use the hashtag #Rebuild100.
Tag three friends in the comments.
The video should:
- Identify an injustice that you care about in the United States.
- Tell us about the scale of the injustice and who it affects.
- Share general information about what we can do to address the injustice.
- Pitch your own idea for how we can act to address the injustice now.
What do we mean by an ‘idea?’ An idea for social change should offer an actionable solution to address the injustice that you’ve identified. We don’t expect you to solve the injustice entirely, but your idea should be something that people can do now to make a difference. Do you want to start a coalition, change a local or national policy or law, write new school curricula, or get other young people involved in a project? Tell us about it!
Here’s the fine print:
- You must be currently living in the United States.
- You must be between the ages of 13 to 25 to enter.
- The deadline for submission is Friday, April 30, 2021.
How will we judge videos? Here’s what we’re looking for:
- Innovation - Is your idea for change something new, or using existing ideas or technologies in new ways? Are you building on existing work to do something new?
- Analysis of injustice -- Have you clearly identified an injustice and the scale and scope of the problem?
- Actionable Solution -- Is your solution something that young people can act on right now?
- Presentation -- Did you follow guidelines for lighting and creating a concise, compelling video?
We’ll work with a team of Peace First staff and youth Ambassadors to judge videos and announce our finalists based on these criteria.
