Project VoiceScape

A partnership with Adobe Youth Voices, PBS and POV to mentor today's best young documentary filmmakers.

About Project VoiceScape

Project VoiceScape encourages middle- and high-school students nationwide to use digital media tools to create compelling stories about issues and concerns important to them. The 15 winning projects are awarded $2,000 each in completion funds, and the students are mentored by award-winning documentary filmmakers. In addition, three finalists have been selected and will be featured on the POV website, PBS Teachers website and Adobe Foundation websites. Project VoiceScape grant recipients were honored at an event in Washington, D.C., in October 2011.
