Osaka, Japan - Panasonic Corporation has completed the final judging process for the Global Contest 2019 of "Kid Witness News (KWN)", an educational program designed to support the video production of elementary, junior high and high school students around the world.
The 18 national winners for the KWN Global Contest 2019 have been selected and approximately 70 representatives of the 18 winning schools in 12 different countries will be invited to Tokyo to attend the "KWN Global Contest 2019" from July 31 to August 2. During this period, the Grand Prix winners will be announced at the KWN Global Contest 2019 Award Ceremony on August 2 at Panasonic Center Tokyo.
KWN activities are currently being conducted in 12 different countries around the world as part of Panasonic's educational support activities for the next generation. This is an interactive educational program in which participating schools are supplied with video equipment and the videos they produce are judged in contests every year. The children complete the entire production process by themselves, from planning to investigation, filming and editing. First launched in the United States in 1989, KWN has now been running for 30 years with a total of more than 180,000 children and their teachers taking part so far. As for this year, around 3,800 people took part from 12 different countries around the world, with video submissions from 315 schools. The five-minute videos were produced on three broad themes - "communications", "environment", and "sports" - as the children offered their own unique perspectives on issues close to them like sports, global environment, and people who have dealt with families, disabilities and PTSD. The 18 national winning entries from 12 countries and regions can be viewed from the following KWN Global Contest 2019 special website.
