“The Pioneer Drama Service is accepting video contest entries from middle and high schools to support drama programs nationwide.
Through The Show Must Go On contest, Pioneer Drama will award more than $10,000 in scripts and royalties to middle and high schools for three-minute videos created by students and staff that demonstrate why “the show must go on” on at their school. Videos should demonstrate what the drama club or program is like now and why it wants to win the contest. In addition, entries should address how the drama club or program helps the school and students, the obstacles has it overcome, and how putting on a play will touch other lives.”

How often do we as producers get to work on a meaningful project AND get the chance to redo it in an additional version? I am lucky to have the opportunity to produce a two-part look (each one a half-hour long) for the public television series Ideas In Action with Jim Glassman exploring how targeted middle school intervention and effective school leadership is curbing the high school dropout crisis in America.
I also have the opportunity to turn the content into a 1-hour special that I am working on now. This will allow me to add even more great content that I found it hard to part with during the initial cuts. Here is a promo for the one-hour version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rISY_IAPgcc
As a mother, I’ve learned so much about how to help usher my children through their educational experiences. As an American, I am hopeful about our ability to educate all children regardless of their backgrounds. As a producer, I am thankful for the opportunity to share stories that may make a difference in someone’s life.
