Now in its 53rd year, the California Student Media Festival is our nation’s oldest student media festival. Over the past twenty years, the California Student Media Festival has awarded more than $145,000 to California Schools. It has expanded to include the work of more than 6,000 student contestants from schools across the state. The Festival exists to celebrate the amazing media and multimedia projects produced by California’s students and teachers — rewarding and acknowledging their successful classroom work at an awards event in June every year. The Festival showcases what can be accomplished when talented students and dedicated teachers work together integrating media and multimedia into education.
The California Student Media Festival is coordinated through the efforts of a group of passionate volunteers. This body coordinate through the year to direct festival activities. Members of this steering committee take on various positions of responsibility including Director, Associate Director, Festival Emcee, Judging Coordinator and others as needed. Additionally, the festival depends on volunteer experts in education and media who judge categories and select winners.
