About the Contest
JSSCC 2021 Youth Ambassador invites you to enter the “Creating a Sacramento Virtual Tour Short Film” video contest. Submit a 5-6 minute video to showcase Sacramento.
In the past, JSSCC has selected Youth Ambassadors representing Sacramento to travel to Jinan annually. The 2021 Tour will take place by a virtual field trip. This year, Youth Ambassadors will introduce Sacramento to Jinan students by using videos. The winning videos will be featured in our exchange programs with Jinan. The videos will be shared with Jinan schools and Jinan citizens so they can learn about Sacramento, the people and lifestyles here.
1. The 5–6 minute video needs to focus on your personal experience and viewpoint of Sacramento.
It is important that it has your personal touch! Please include one or more elements in each of the following two categories:
Personal Presentation. Your school, your family, yourself, your friends, your neighbors or neighborhood, etc.
Sacramento Landmarks and Unique Features. Examples: State Capitol, City Hall, Tower Bridge, murals, Sacramento parks, American River, Sacramento River, etc.
2. Begin your video with a title.
3. Include your name(s), school, city and state in the credits.
