Digital storytelling involves the creative process of combining narration, audio, images, and video clips to share a personal experience, explain a concept, retell a historical event, or make a persuasive argument to an audience. 

Enjoy CCD's Film Festival showcasing outstanding student digital stories for the opportunity to earn one of five $250 scholarships. The five award categories are as follows: 

  1. STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math topics
  2. Identity & Equity: Depiction of diversity, equity, inclusion, or a combination of these  
  3. Journalism: Collecting, writing, and editing information for media news/docu-story 
  4. Wild Card: Any experience, concept, event, or persuasive argument in DST format
  5. Center of Technical Education (CTE): Demonstrated use of DST principles for professional/work-related outcomes  

In addition to these award categories, CCD's Film Festival will feature a student and faculty recognition category. The student recognition highlights film fest submissions from students that are either graduating or transferring from CCD. The faculty recognition highlights film fest submissions from participating faculty in the digital storytelling program.
