About the Teen Video Award's Mission and Cause:
We're using the power of social media, music and the magic of filmmaking to inspire (and educate) 25 million middle and high school students every year to write and direct their own 2-5 minute films that speaks to the widespread epidemic of bullying.
Top teen filmmakers from around the country will be celebrated at the Red Carpet Pre-Show, VIP Reception, Meet-and-Greet, and The Teen Video Awards to celebrate the importance of standing up and making a difference. Your donations will go to support those teens who are standing up and making a difference.
Eight winners will be announced LIVE at the Teen Video Awards, and prizes for the eight winning films range from a $10k video production deal to scholarships, laptops, iPad’s, video cameras and a trip to Sundance Film Festival.
