Project ED Contes...

Did you know 50 percent of all teachers leave the classroom within five years? Did you know that half the teachers in the United States will become eligible for retirement in the next decade? Teaching is an amazing and powerful profession, so we need your help in creating videos that show just how much teachers matter.

In this contest, we need your filmmaking and special effects skills to make a film about a world without teachers.

In a video no longer than two minutes, you must:

  • Imagine a future without teachers. Show us what America would be like. What would happen to the economy? To the government? To the arts? To kids? To parents? To the planet?
  • Show us how that outcome could be different when every student in every grade has a great teacher.

Great Teaching Matters

Participant Media, the producer of TEACH, a documentary about the power of teaching, is reframing and elevating the profession of teaching. Their goal is to inspire the next generation to teach. Winning and honorable mention videos in this contest may air as part of Participant Media's TEACH campaign on takepart.com/TEACH.

Check out this video from participant Media for some inspiration on why Every Student Deserves a Great Teacher, and while you're at it go to takepart.com/teach and take the pledge to support great teaching.

More on Teaching In America

America’s schools are in crisis, and the only people who can give our kids the education they deserve are underappreciated and underpaid. Think it doesn’t matter? Think again. The entire teaching profession is at risk if this trend continues. We need a major change in the way we treat our teachers, and we need to inspire the next generation to teach.

What other profession lets you hang out with kids all day? What other profession lets you be passionate, exciting, funny, innovative, adventurous, collaborative, creative. What other profession has a more profound impact on the trajectory of a child's life, a family's life, a community's life — the world?

What other profession could possibly be more important than teaching? Teachers are literally educating the future. Great teaching matters!
