Fun Event & Activity Ideas
This works great as an outreach event.
Hold a formal night (tuxes, gowns, etc.). Book a youth band and provide desserts. Go to your local trophy store and buy 12 cheap "Oscar" trophies to do a whole Oscar night.
The key is plugging this months ahead of time so students can make videos to submit for the evening. You'll want to list some guidelines about content, length, etc. Have the videos due at least 2 weeks before the event so you can screen them and prepare the awards, etc.
We tried to reach out to students outside the group by talking to some local schools with film classes or drama classes. We let them in on the competition. We had one teacher give extra marks if the kids did it. The Sky is the limit with this.
