REAL DEAL Contest Kit

Your Story Matters – Everything you need to enter the REAL DEAL writing contest!vin-contest-kit

It all begins in the classroom: Thousands of students who go through the REAL DEAL curriculum submit stories to the REAL DEAL writing contest. Stories are chosen through our Selection Committee (a group of volunteers from across the country), and the young winning writers are partnered with acclaimed Hollywood filmmakers to transform their stories into short films. Check out our library of films here.
