Along with the student application, the student will be asked to submit 3-6 photos and/or one video (less than 3 minutes) about the student and their service project. Applicants are encouraged to collaborate with the video production or communications departments on their campus to help create video content about their project.
Photos and videos (YouTube URLs) should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Important notes regarding photos/video:
- - When selecting photos or videos of your service work that include other people, please be considerate as to whether there are any circumstances under which some of the individuals would not want to be identified. While we realize it is difficult to obtain photo or video permissions from everyone visible, we ask you not to submit images of individuals who may need to keep their identity confidential due to the nature of the community services they are receiving. We appreciate you using your best judgment, and if any individuals shown in your photos or videos have any concerns, we are happy to remove them from the site immediately.
- - If the service project is part of an AmeriCorps, Learn and Serve, or VISTA program, please try to include photos/video shots with the logo.
Applicants are highly encouraged to submit stories written in support of the applicant and/or their service project. Such stories can be written by parents, mentors, professors, friends, classmate, co-workers, etc.
