Bonnerversary Video

Page history last edited by Lindsay 10 years, 5 months ago

Video is one of the best tools for communication out there today.  A combination of images, interviews, story, and music: a good film educates, convinces, and inspires its audience.  As Bonners, we want to harness the power of video, and use it as a tool to tell our story, to share our experience, and to inspire others to “join the count.”


This summer we are celebrating 20 years of Bonner service across the nation, and it is up to your programs to share your Bonner story, your program’s legacy, through video.  


Is it possible to convert the passion, understanding, and experience of Bonner students, communities, and campuses into films that educate and inspire other college students to get involved? Can we share our best stories of transformed lives, of healthy communities, of student development and growth to the whole world through video?  We at the Bonner Foundation are asking your program to submit a cream of the crop, quality video to the Bonner Video Project Bonnerversary Film category in honor of the Bonner Network’s 20th anniversary.


The Bonner Video Project was conceived as a framework for our schools, a way for our students to explore the power of film as a tool for communicating passion and purpose.  We expect nothing less than quality films from our participants: films that are well-thought out, purposeful, creative, and fun, and we are asking each school in our network to submit a video for the Bonnerversary Film category of the Bonner Video Project.


These videos are due on May 15th, 2010.  For more information on the Bonnversary Fim Project, check out the webpage: 




We look forward to your submissions!
