“Orthodoxy and the Selma Marches” Video Contest


Hey everybody this is Steve, and this March is the fiftieth anniversary
of historic marches from Selma to Birmingham in 1965. To help mark the anniversary Y2AM and the department of Inter-Orthodox, Inter-faith,
and Ecumenical Relations are really excited to sponsor a brand new
video contest for youth and young adults. The winners will, among other prizes, get to attend a historic panel at the United
Nations commemorating the anniversary. To enter make a video between 30 and 60 seconds
long. Tell us why you, as an Orthodox Christian, think the marches were so important in American
history. And make sure you start your video with the
words I believe. The panel will take place on the afternoon
of March 26th, so you need to submit your video no later than
March 6th. Just like the Orthodoxy in Motion video contest,
we’re going to have two divisions; GOYA, ages 13-17, and REAL, ages 18-35. And just like Orthodoxy in Motion, you’ll
be able to enter on our Facebook pages, GOA Youth for GOYA entries, GOA Young Adults
for REAL entries. Just look for the tag that say Orthodoxy and
the Selma Marches Video Contest. Our panel of judges will then review your
videos and based on content and presentation, pick
one winner in each division. If the judges pick your video, we’ll feature
it on the new Archdiocese website commemorating
the marches. And we’ll fly you to New York for the March
26th UN panel where you’ll have reserved seating for this
amazing experience. And, we’re still working on this but the winners
might even be able to speak at the end of the panel, at the UN which is a pretty amazing experience. Read the official rules for details, link in the blurb
below. So do some research, think about what happened
in Selma 50 years ago, and tell us why you as an Orthodox christian think it’s so important and keep your eyes
open for a new episode of Be the Bee on the Selma anniversary coming in early March. Be the bee and live Orthodoxy. We’re really excited to see your videos and I’ll see you Thursday on the next episode
of Be the Bee.

    Hey Y2AM,
    I have been following your videos and learning a lot about orthodoxy from them! Can you create some videos about faith and trust in God? Thanks!
