This summer, OBW is moving its summer activities online. We decided to create a safe and fun online community. The One Beautiful World YouTube channel (bit.ly/OBWyt) will be a place where youth can post their own videos (vetted by OBW). There they can learn, teach, and share.
We are welcoming videos from all youth in the following categories:
- How to videos
- Talent show
- My summer vacation
- Book reviews
- Toy/game reviews
We are welcoming informational/learning videos in the following categories from teens and tweens interested in earning service hours:
- Instructional videos (including tech support videos on how to use devices, programs, and apps)
- Demonstrations (science experiments, cooking, arts and crafts, etc.)
- Story time for younger kids (read your favorite picture books)
We ask that the videos be recorded in landscape orientation, in high definition, and of course, be general audience family friendly with respect to topic, visuals, and language. All of our videos are to be “made for kids” per COPPA. Please make sure the content does not violate health and safety rules regarding the transmission of Covid-19.
Historically, OBW has been limited to action in South Florida. This summer, we have no limitations! Youth from all over the world are welcome to participate. Please forward this announcement to any youth you believe may wish to participate. We would love to see videos from kids around the world teaching other kids about their lives and their home countries.
Tell your young videographers to get started. There is no limit on submissions. Makers of multiple video submissions will receive an OBW Video Production Team sticker.
Send your videos to OBWvideosubmissions@gmail.com.
Parents of teens and tweens seeking service hours for videos: please send a separate email to the above address authenticating the hours your youth worked on creating their videos. Please include the youth’s name, the title of the video(s), your address, the dates and times the youth worked on the video(s), and an email address for sending the service hour form.
