Request for Proposals:
Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted all of our lives, and as a result there are many compelling stories to be told. Rhode Island PBS is asking for proposals from independent and student producers to develop and produce short films (3 – 5 minutes) on the subject of the COVID-19 pandemic. The subject may be a personal response or a community story that reflects on the pandemic from either a contemporary or historical perspective--creativity in format and concept is encouraged.
Limited funding is available to successful proposals. If interested, please review the full Request for Proposals (RFP) with application details at this link. Please note: deadline for submissions has been extended to April 9, 2021.
Student Art Competition:
The White House: An American Story
The White House Historical Association is hosting a national student art competition to celebrate its 60th Anniversary and the legacy of its founder, First Lady Jaqueline Kennedy, with the theme “The White House: An American Story.” WHHA seeks submissions from students across the country that depict and reflect the White House, its collection, and its diverse history – that of presidents and first families, enslaved workers, dedicated staff, and the American public.
The competition is open for submissions from February 1, 2021 to May 7, 2021 and will have three grade-level categories: grades K through 3, grades 4 through 8, and grades 9 through 12. Winners in each category will be chosen via a panel of three judges and will be announced in July as part of the Association’s annual celebration of Mrs. Kennedy’s birthday.
