Rebecca Evans AM, is encouraging A-level students in her Gower constituency to take part in the Political Studies Association Schools’ Video Competition.
The competition, which is now in its seventh year, asks students to explore the question: “Fake News: Is this the end of facts?”
Groups of students are invited to submit short videos on this subject, examining what fake news is, what effect it may be having on the political landscape and what it means for expert opinion and ‘factual’ knowledge.
Rebecca Evans AM, said: “Fake news is big news, and this is a great way for young people to consider some of the real questions that face us as we navigate modern sources of information and opinion."
Shortlisted groups will be invited to Speaker’s House in the Palace of Westminster to discuss the ideas raised in their video with a panel of politicians, journalists and academics.
The winners of the Schools' Short Video Competition will receive their award at the PSA’s Annual Awards Ceremony in Westminster, and get a week’s work experience with the YouGov political team during their school holidays.
The deadline for entries is 12 noon 30 October 2017
Full competition details for 2017 and how to enter are published on the PSA’s website at: www.psa.ac.uk
