Walnut Creek, CA., June 14, 2013 - Computer-Using Educators, Inc. (CUE), in conjunction with PBS SoCal, is hosting the 47th annual California Student Media Festival this Saturday. The festival, the nation’s oldest, is dedicated to honoring student achievement and highlighting student creativity through media.
This year’s recipients will be featured from 9am - 12pm on June 15, 2013 at TCL Chinese Theater, formerly known as Grauman’s Chinese Theater, in Hollywood. While it is free to attend, the event is now “sold out” due to high interest. A waiting list is now available.
“Media is among the most powerful learning tools, and the Festival provides a way to showcase learning in a fun and engaging way,“ said Mike Lawrence, the Festival’s Director.
Hall Davidson, the Festival’s emcee and former Director shared, “Every student knows that
somehow, somewhere, deep inside, he or she is a star. Students just need help discovering the moment. By tying the festival experience to learning, the festival makes the curriculum a path toward recognizing that inner stardom. The process works—and kids will work hard to be part of it.”
PBS SoCal will be capturing the highlights of the festival to produce a one-hour special to air on Sept. 5 at 7pm.
