Your Digital Storytelling on the position of the school towards bullying

What is this contest about? Digital storytelling represents an event-presenting technique using a combination of images, text, music, and videos. Twelve grade high school students interested in participating in this contest should develop a digital storytelling (between 2 to 3 minutes long) depicting their own view regarding the impact of the school’s position towards bullying. Students can chose to describe this issue from an educational, social, economic, and/ or health-related standpoint. All stories should be developed in English. Also, it is mandatory for the voice of the student to be heard during the video (i.e. as the narrating voice).

How will this contest count for my admission to Cluj School of Public Health? At the end of this contest, we will determine three winners (see Submission & evaluation) who will be automatically admitted to Cluj School of Public Health in the 2019-2020 university year. All three winners will be admitted on tuition-free places, provided that they have a Baccalaureate degree by the 2019-2020 university admission session and submit their file to Cluj School of Public Health during the admission period.
