Pacific achievers project 2013
Inspire, dream, achieve
How do you get young Pacific students to want more from life? You get them to look into their own backyard for inspiration and see what's special about the people in their own community. That's the aim behind the Pacific Achievers project. With the help of a production company, we sent 76 students from 19 schools out into their community with a camera to film someone who inspired them. The project led to stories about future doctors, teachers, writers, scientists and other interesting role models. See below for more career choices.
The two-minute videos are ready to be viewed and we want you to cast your vote by watching them. Between Thursday 24 October and Sunday 10 November we will count the number of views each school's film receives on YouTube. This number will be used by a judging panel comprising Pasifika media and education experts to help determine which school has produced the best film. The school who receives the most views for their video goes in to win a video camera.
