END FAMILY FIRE SCHOLARSHIP COMPETITION

END FAMILY FIRE SCHOLARSHIP COMPETITION

End Family Fire

 

The End Family Fire Scholarship Competition gives students a chance to make a difference through the power of creativity and storytelling.
The competition challenges high school and college-aged students to create a video which speaks directly to adults and aims to bring awareness to the issue of family fire – a shooting involving an improperly stored or misused gun found in the home, which results in death or injury. The video will promote safe gun storage as a way to prevent future family fire tragedies.

 


 

PRIZES

Two (2) winning entries will be selected, one from high school and one from college, and each will receive a $5,000 scholarship to be used toward college, university, or trade school tuition, fees and/or supplies.
The winning entrants will also have the opportunity to have their video used by the Ad Council as an official End Family Fire campaign PSA, with a potential to be distributed nationally to over 1,600 television stations.

 

THE RULES

Before beginning creative production, all applicants must review the official rules, creative brief, and ensure they meet the eligibility requirements to participate in the competition. For those students who are under the age of 18, or are not yet a legal adult in the state in which they reside, they must obtain parent or guardian permission in order to participate in the scholarship competition. Students may not incorporate guns of any kind in the video, including toy or prop guns.

 

HOW TO ENTER

Video submissions are due on June 16, 2019. The winning entries will be announced in late July 2019 and will go live on August 8th, 2019. Please submit all applications via the entry submission form at bit.ly/EFFscholarship.

THE GENERATION THAT WILL END GUN VIOLENCE

 

 

Mass shootings, like those in Parkland, Florida and Sante Fe, Texas, are devastating, as are the everyday shootings that shatter families and communities all across this country. Team ENOUGH aims to reduce both mass shootings and everyday gun deaths from suicide, crime, domestic violence, accidents and other causes.

Between now and the November elections, Team ENOUGH will mobilize young voters and elect candidates to advance our top priorities:

  • Universal background checks for every gun sale
  • Ban assault weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines
  • “Extreme Risk” laws that remove guns from people in crisis

Through monthly grassroots action, we will deploy the power of our generation for electoral and policy change. Together, we will create a world where more Americans, wherever they live, are safe in their homes, schools, streets, workplaces, houses of worship and wider communities.

An intersectional approach to gun violence prevention is a key priority of Team ENOUGH. The success of the gun violence prevention movement depends on deeply understanding the context and communities in which violence occurs.

TEAM ENOUGH IS DRIVEN BY YOUNG VOICES.

 

We recognize the value that students bring to the national debate: fresh perspective, drive, a no-nonsense approach and an unapologetic quest for answers and actions to prevent gun violence.

We provide a platform to unite accomplished students and activists to amplify our voices for greater impact.

We are diverse. More than two-thirds of the Team ENOUGH Executive Council are people of color, diverse faith backgrounds, or LGBTQ+.

We are intersectional. We care deeply about gun violence prevention (GVP) and its disproportionate impact on vulnerable communities.
