NEXT GENERATION ANGELS AWARDS:

COPYRIGHT CEREMONY & RESEARCH ORIENTATION

Presentation of Copyrights

At this event the 2020 Next Generation Angels Awards winners will be presented with official copyrights for their prize-winning films by George Thuronyi, the Deputy Director of Public Information and Education at the U.S. Copyright Office. This will cement these students’ status as burgeoning filmmakers by ensuring that their films will be accessible for decades to come, as well as ensuring their own place in history in our nation’s premier historical archive.

“Students Teaching Teachers” : A PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT EVENT FOR TEACHERS

This event also offers teachers and students an opportunity to flip the teacher/student paradigm with the students leading the panel, discussing their research process and answering questions before an online audience of social studies and history teachers. Designed to be yet another empowering opportunity for these students, they offer their own anecdotal commentary in order to teach the educators how to guide their students effectively to learn research skills. The Library of Congress education staff will also be on hand to explain how their digital archives can be used by students in history documentary filmmaking.
