The 25th annual Student Educational Video Awards were held at CSU Sacramento on May 5. SEVA Awards were given to students for best news story, short documentary, long documentary, public service announcement, and instructional videos. Awards were given in each category to students in grades K-3, 4-6, and 9-12.
With over 400 submissions, this year marked the most films ever submitted in the 25 year year history of the festival. Curiosity Films students picked up two Honorable Mentions for their PSAs “The City of Elk Grove Reminds You…Green and Clean” and “Go Reusable.” We had several Finalists in the instructional film category as well.
Former Curiosity Films student Antone Cruz also picked up an Honorable Mention for his short documentary Film, “Japanese Baseball.”
Congratulations to all the teams who submitted films to this year’s SEVAs. The learning and film work continues. We have several instructional films in producing currently for next year’s SEVAs, and we’re starting work on Digital Citizenship PSAs, too.
