Tell all the students you know to pick up their cameras and start filming to help end childhood hunger. We want to see what children and youth have to say about childhood hunger and what better way to get their opinions and ideas than through video. We want students to make videos that answer the question: How can you help end childhood hunger in your community?

The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is accepting student-created videos of two minutes or less that show creative ways that students are tackling the problem of childhood hunger or a creative idea that students have that would help to end childhood hunger, even if they haven't put the plan into action quite yet. We will review all of the submissions here at FNS and then put the finalists up for a public vote. The winning videos will inspire students across the country to take action in their own communities. Winning videos will be featured on the FNS website and on a national webinar.

We want to see these ideas in action! For example, you can send us videos about educating your peers about nutrition, promoting school breakfast and lunch programs, working with local food banks or other anti-hunger organizations, or even engaging local officials, organizations, school, or businesses to help end childhood hunger. The sky is the limit. Remember, we want to learn how students, grades 1-12 are helping to end childhood hunger!

The contest submission period begins September 15, 2011 and runs until October 21, 2011.
