Parliament’s Education Service wants young people to tell Parliament what new law they would make by producing either a 3 minute short film, a 200-500 word script or a 5–10 frame storyboard.
Anyone between the ages of 7 – 16yrs can enter the competition either individually or as part of a group. Prizes will include a cinema voucher, a video camera for the winner’s school, a behind the scenes tour of Parliament with a chance to meet Members and a special showcasing of the winning entries at the British Film Institute!
Last year’s winners proposed laws that would make it compulsory to wear helmets when cycling and that would lower the voting age to 16. You can see their inspiring films at https://www.makewav.es/story/485967/title/lightscameraparliament2013winners
This year’s website has just launched with lots of new tips and resources for young people – and regularly updated inspiration topics and blogs. Entries can be submitted from now until the 14th of February. Find out more by visiting www.makewav.es/lcp and http://www.parliament.uk/education/in-your-school/lights-camera-parliament/
Get creative and get your voice heard!
