The goal of the Council Rock Elementary Media Festival is to support and encourage the use of digital media in elementary curriculum assignments to create quality, engaging projects, presentations, and activities and to also encourage problem solving, collaboration, and higher level thinking.
To qualify and to be judged, all media projects entered into the media festival judged event MUST be a project that was developed as part of a Council Rock elementary curriculum assignment or presentation. Links to rules and scoring criteria are posted above.
All entries for the 16-17 festival MUST be submitted by the end of the day, (TBA).  An application must be completed for each submission, and the application will be considered as part of the judging materials. Projects without an application will not be judged. Applications without a submitted project cannot be considered. The School Level Media Application link is at the top of this page. If needed, please ask for help submitting projects before the deadline.
Thank you for being a part of the 2016-2017 Council Rock Elementary Media Festival. Best of luck!
