K-12 Video Contest

Fondazione Italia, in collaboration with the Consulates General of Italy in Los Angeles & San Francisco and the Italian Cultural Institutes of Los Angeles & San Francisco, invites K-12 students to to create a short “Tik Tok” style video in Italian that uses an English word that has been “Italianized” and is being used by today’s youth (“giovani”). For example, a text “chat” has created the new slang verb “chattare” in Italian so a student may film themselves having a conversation in which they use the verb “chattare.” Students can also consider get creative and have fun with their videos!

Deadline is October 12, 2022
