Contest Information

Contest Theme: “I am Migration” (global solidarity with migrants and refugees.)

Students have submitted their videos about solidarity with migrants and refugees. Finalists will be selected from all entries and announced no later than Thursday, April 6, 2017.    If selected as a finalist, you are required to submit a hard copy of your video (via disc or usb drive).  Please note that a finalist’s failure to submit a hard copy of the video will disqualify his or her entry from further contest participation.  Once finalists have been chosen, they will be announced on the IPR website and a voting period will begin. CUA students, staff and friends are encouraged to visit to view finalists’ entries and vote for their favorite finalist during this time (one vote per person).  These finalist videos will be showcased at an April 10, 2017 live event at which time contest winners will be announced.
