 Here Comes the iVIE Competition

It's time to get those cameras rolling again while getting students excited about project-based learning. The annual Innovative Video in Education - or iVIE - program will begin soon.

The submission period for next year's competition opens Nov. 1 and will remain open until March 6, 2015.

The iVIE program, organized by the San Diego County Office of Education, is a powerful way for teachers to incorporate standards-based hands-on experiences into their lessons. The competition provides a chance for students to take ownership of their learning in a collaborative and rigorous environment.

The contest is open to students throughout the county in kindergarten through 12th grade. It culminates with a film festival in April.

Submitted videos are judged by media professionals and educators. Awards will be given in categories including math, science, language arts, documentary, and public service announcement.

This year’s new and improved iVIE competition will feature a new website, new categories, and a judging rubric that aligns more closely with learning objectives and standards.

Also new this year, the San Diego County Credit Union will host a 36-hour film competition for high school students called the iVIE Red Eye.

The Innovative Video in Education (iVIE) program is an annual k-12 student video competition that has drawn thousands of participating students from every grade level across San Diego County for the last 14 years. Throughout the school year, teachers and students use video as a project-based learning tool in the classroom, ultimately creating videos that ignite imagination and inspire student confidence while integrating state content standards.
