Last year, over 265 students in the region took a shot at changing the world, and made movies about the polio vaccine in Pittsburgh. This year, the contest is bigger and better and we're encouraging students in SWPA to "make a movie and make a difference", by focusing on Pittsburgh innovations and innovators that have change the world and what you might do to make a difference!
Check out these articles in Pop City! and the Pittsburgh Tribune Review on the contest and the new TV show just shot in Pittsburgh (produced by "Two and a Half Men" director Jamie Widdoes).
