Youth Media Festival Finalists and Winners: Spring 2018

P4L students rocked it on Saturday, April 28th at the Montgomery County Youth Media Festival. There were 6 short film finalists in the middle school competition and three of them were P4L student teams (from Silver Spring Int'l MS, Eastern MS and Loiederman MS).

First prize was won by two of our GRRL Tech girls from Loiederman Middle School: Mayeni and Momo. They produced a powerful documentary film called "Beauty is in the Bleach" about skin bleaching in Nigeria to meet beauty standards, influenced by its colonialist past.

Thanks go to Gandhi Brigade Media for organizing and sponsoring this terrific event for #YouthMedia #YouthVoiceMatters
