PSA Student Video Competition 2019
We're please to announce the 2019 Student Video Competition winners as Rosa and Lily, from City of London School for Girls.
On Wednesday 4th March, we concluded our 2019 Student Video Competition with an exciting judging panel held at the House of Lords, Westminster. We short-listed four finalists, their videos can be viewed here.
We welcomed students from this year's competition to present their videos to our panel of prestigious judges: Baroness Helene Hayman, PSA Trustee Dr Kate Mattocks, BBC Political Correspondent Helen Catt and Director of Political Research at YouGov Anthony Wells.
Congratulations to each team that made it this far in the competition:
- Rosa & Lily from City of London School for Girls
- Helena and Nikita from James Allen's Girls' School
- Oliver from BHASVIC
- Zaki, Muhammad & Shaiam from New City College
The theme of this year's competition was 'Our Climate Emergency: The Voice of the Next Generation'. All teams passionately presented their videos sharing their motivations for entering the competition and what inspired their take on the competition theme. Our judges put the studnets through their paces; asking students what changes they've made in their lives, what their top policy for tackling climate change would be, and whether or not Brexit will have an impact on our approach to climate change.
We've certainly found an impressive group of students because they managed the Q&A sessions with ease and composure. All the judges and PSA staff were impressed with the standard of entries this year. It's safe to say that the future is in incredibly capable hands!
Congratulations to our winners Rosa and Lily, from City of London School for Girls. Their video featured interviews with people from a variety of generations and focussed on what individuals could and are doing to reduce the impact of climate change on our society. The judges were particularly impressed with the quality of their footage, with BBC Correspondent Helen Catt amazed at their videography skills - having to double check they had filmed the footage themselves!
