In preparation for the much anticipated release of the documentary “The Address,” WUCF TV, Central Florida PBS, is joining filmmaker Ken Burns and PBS in challenging Central Floridians to video record themselves reading or reciting the Gettysburg Address.
To create excitement and encourage educators to engage their students in the project, WUCF TV has created a challenge for local schools, libraries, museums and educational organizations. Five education professionals who commit to recording the most videos will each be awarded an iPad Mini. The tablets can then be used as the recording device and kept for future use in the winners’ classroom, museum, library or other educational organization.
Educators can apply by visiting http://wucftv.org/
The public can find information for submitting videos by visiting http://wucftv.org/
Funding for THE ADDRESS is provided by Bank of America; the Anne Ray Charitable Trust; Public Broadcasting Service; and members of The Better Angels Society, including The Pfeil Foundation and Robert & Beverly Grappone. Funding was also provided by Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), as part of “American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen,” a public media initiative to help communities solve the national high school dropout crisis and keep more students on a successful path to college and career.
