In collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution, RGV teens are invited to participate in Earth Optimism at IMAS. Participating teens (ages 13-18) will be able to borrow video equipment and editing software to create a short 2-minute video to submit to the Teens Dream Video Competition and winning videos will be screened in Washington, DC in 2021 through the Smithsonian’s Earth Optimism initiative.

There are three cohorts and teens only need to register for one group. Through this project, participants will share their observations and ideas on how to promote practices for a sustainable future. Workshops run for 3 weeks from 10/5-23, 11/2-20, 11/30-12/18. Participants are required to attend weekly meetings via Google Hangouts on Mondays from 3-4 PM, and individual check-ins through email, during their workshop period.
Earth Optimism at IMAS is sponsored by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee.
