The Future I See...
Technology has always helped transform the world.
Today, cell phones and tablets let us stay connected to friends and family -- or even just play games wherever we go. Airplanes let people cross oceans faster than ever before. Lightbulbs help keep our homes bright at night. Television brings us new kinds of entertainment and allows us to see what’s happening on the other side of the planet.
Now, imagine it’s 2050. What does the world look like? How have you used technology to change the world? Have you created cleaner air or water? Found a new way for people to communicate? Invented a new way to travel?
Make a PSA that shows how you'll use technology to change the world for the better and create a healthier, happier future.
Girl Scouts Speak Out! will accept entries from September 1, 2013 through January 15, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Voting on all entries will close at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on January 31, 2014.
"The Future I See..." was made possible through a partnership with Dell.
Tips to Help You Get Started
You can submit your PSA as a video, a photo slideshow with captions or in script format. Think about the best way to get your message across.
Should you come up with a fun character that will help people remember your message? Write a brilliant and catchy slogan that inspires people to repeat it to their friends? What's the most important thing? Be creative.
Keep the clip short (three minutes or less). We're not looking for fancy special effects, complicated camera work or movie that's ready for Hollywood. If you want to sit down and talk to the camera – that's just fine. If you get a group together and act it out, that's ok too. Do whatever works for you.
Art and Photos
Choose ten photos or illustrations that tell your story. Be sure to use the captions to make your point clear. You don't have to submit photos that are ready for a magazine cover. Cell phone photos or scans of drawings are just fine as long as they are clear and in focus.
Write your script. Be sure to set the scene and describe what's happening on screen. Aim for 500 words or less.
