The 2011 Sacramento Educational Video Awards (SEVA’s) are now available on the AccessLocal.tv web site. Organized more than 20 years ago by the Sacramento Educational Cable Consortium, it is the premiere event celebrating video production from schools throughout the County. Quoting from the SECC’s web site:
“The SEVA Award Night has evolved into the premiere event to showcase student educational videos to the Sacramento community. Community members and educators play an active role in judging the video entries each year – participation in this annual event has grown to include more than 70 schools and thousands of students.
For more than 20 years, SECC has worked with students and teachers exploring the value of video production. The annual SEVA or Student Educational Video Awards contest is open to all Sacramento county students (K-20) and celebrates the talents and visions of student video producers. Winners and participants are recognized at this SECC and Comcast sponsored event and winning videos and producer interviews are shown on cable and online.
Students of all ages enter their multimedia projects in categories that include documentary, instructional, PSA (Public Service Announcement) and school news. The SEVAs also help connect SECC with Sacramento county students (K-20) and their entries are showcased on Cable 15 & 16 through Student DV, a unique series featuring videos, technical tips and teacher and student producer interviews.”
