I met Brad Edwards and asked him to share his program with us. This short film contest method is very effective! I love the Oscar cake on this website!

A simple book editor. From the creators:

As many of us in North America plan to eat a bit this week – it is good to think of this program that asks youth to become activists against hunger.
“The student contest titled Meanings of Hunger asks students, no older than 18 years to get involved in exploring an aspect of hunger that interests them. The contest is simple but has room for a lot of creativity: students use the definition of hunger as inspiration to explore an aspect of hunger that interests them. Possible projects range from a poem or essay about hunger to a diorama of a refugee camp in Darfur. You can get more details online: http://www.actionagainsthunger.org/students
The contest is open until December 3rd, 2010 and will be judged on clarity of information, creativity and connection to topic. While everyone can participate, the 3 highest-scoring submissions will be profiled on the ACF website and will receive a Student Activist package.”
