About the videos:

The video should be no longer than 1 minute in length and G-rated. It can be educational, funny, musical, a spoof, or whatever you think gets the attention of the average public viewer. Be creative! You can choose any conservative topic you want. Our goal is to see high school students engaged in and aware of the civic responsibilities we all bear. We know that is not always easy in a high school setting.

Need some ideas?

Interview an elected official on a hot topic
Do Man-On-The-Street interviews
Share a message encouraging students to stand up for conservative values at school
Teach anything about the Constitution!
Give your vision of a conservative America
Explain why a conservative America is a healthy America.
Tell us how conservatism mirrors what the Bible says
Do a short documentary from the campaign trail of a local candidate
Make an ad for a candidate… or better yet, your conservative club!
Do a pretend newscast on an applicable topic.

The possibilities are endless! Just remember… be entertaining and creative! If nobody wants to watch, it doesn’t do anyone any good!

Judging:

The leadership team of True Texas Project will do the final judging based on personal opinion as well as the feedback received from activists in our organization. A selection of finalists will have their videos shown at the April 13 True Texas Project meeting for feedback from the audience, and winners will be announced on April 30, 2020 on our True Texas Project Facebook, Instagram, and website! Scholarships will be awarded at the students’ baccalaureate programs. All decisions of the Board of True Texas Project are final and indisputable.
