HONORING YOUNG TEXAS FILMMAKERS PROMOTING POSITIVE SOCIAL CHANGE

ABOUT THE NOBELITY SOCIAL IMPACT AWARD

The Nobelity Social Impact Award celebrates student films that inform their audiences about issues that affect their communities, and inspire social change.

 

All student films submitted to the UIL competition are eligible for this chance to win film equipment for your classroom.

A panel of judges will select four films:

1st and 2nd place in Division I and II. Winners receive a Precision Camera gift card to purchase classroom equipment.

We are proud to support these important young voices. Thanks to all of the students who participate, keep up the great work!

 

Thanks to Paramount Theater, Louisiana Charities Trust, Eloise DeJoria, and JP's Peace, Love & Happiness Foundation for funding these awards.
