The Olelo Youth Exchange is a competition for mostly PSA's with a category for news stories also. They have a variety of different competition categories, but here I will tell you which one I am thinking of doing.
I plan to participate in the Forest Health category. I am planning to make a simple video that has a huge impact. The message would be, "Reverse the Impact, Don't Increase It". It will be a simple seeming video that will really take a lot of effort to complete.
I am thinking of starting it off with a bunch of shots of nice, healthy forests with a variety of shots. After about 8 seconds it would switch to a bunch of invasive species flocking the forest grounds. After you get a chance to see what the invasive species have done, someone will start to clean it up, for example there could a a shot of a group of ginger and then during the shot someone comes over and digs it up. From there I will have shots of more people cleaning up the forest. Then it will rewind back to a healthy forest and the message will fade on.
I will also briefly describe my backup idea. It would fall under the Creating Peace category. There will be a cyber bully on a computer about to send a hurtful message to a victim. Right when he is about to push the send button, a bunch of windows will just pop up that state "Don't bully" and similar messages. The bully just closes the laptop and walks away in a way that tells you that he gets the message.
Well, those are my ideas on what to do for my 3rd quarter PSA that I will hopefully be submitting to the Olelo Youth Exchange. Come back soon for some more. Bye!
I am in 8th grade in my school's Advanced Media class. I love this class and I have been having lots of fun in it. This past year we went to San Diego, where STN was held, and the year before it was in Orlando. This year it was in Atlanta, Georgia.
