Social justice video contest open to teens

The Social Justice Fund for Ventura County is accepting entries from Ventura County teens ages 14 to 18 for the second annual Social Justice Fund Teen Multimedia Contest.

Teens are asked to express what social justice means to them through essay, song lyrics, poem, poster or video. Original work should address a social justice issue by identifying the problem and imagining a positive change the artist or author would like to see.

First-place winners in each of three categories— written word, poster and video—will receive $250 and be invited to present their work May 6 as part of the fund’s annual “Social Justice Center Stage” community event at The Four Friends Gallery in Thousand Oaks.

Winning entries will be on display at this event, and the winners will be invited to attend and to show their work.

The contest entry deadline is Mon., April 2.
