The Edit: Be the change, shape it

It’s all in The Edit. How we shape stories can change the world. We want young people to share their vision, change starts with us.  

The Edit competition – brought to you in partnership with Adobe– is back for a second year and we are joining forces with English Football’s equality and inclusion organisation, Kick It Out, to help tackle discrimination and give racism the red card.  

Communication, problem-solving, critical thinking- your students will learn it all as they work together to create their own news reports. They will learn about the different roles involved in the whole production process, receiving tips from Sky Sports News and Sky News experts while developing key media literacy and digital skills.  

Young people’s voices and views should be heard. Give them the chance to shape the story and shine a light on inequality by registering to take part today.

The Challenge

Got an internet connection and a device? You’ve got everything you need to participate – Adobe Spark is free and accessible on all devices, even a phone or iPad! 

Students will create up to a 90 second video news report on one of two topics: 

Someone (past or present) who has made the world a more equal, diverse or inclusive place, and the actions they’ll take to #TakeAStand and be more inclusive  

OR  

Raising awareness of climate change and communicating the actions they’ll take to #GoZero by reducing carbon emissions and working towards a more sustainable future.

Creative tools for both at home and in the classroom

We created The Edit to help close the digital divide and address the barriers to entry for young people, particularly from under-represented backgrounds, so they can get an insight into what careers in the media industry might look like and introduce them to new skills.  

You can set this project remotely or in the classroom, unlocking opportunities for young people to become digital storytellers.  

Most students have missed out this year- on time together, trips away, and many other opportunities. Make sure they get this chance to tell a meaningful story, learn new skills and work together to create something they can truly be proud of.
