IB inspired - a student film competition

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is launching a student film competition, encouraging IB Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP) students to create a 3-4 minute film in English, French, and/or Spanish that profiles, celebrates, or honors an IB teacher or coordinator that inspires them to exhibit or embrace one of the IB Learner Profile attributes.

Teachers make a lasting impact in the lives of their students and we would like to show our teachers that we appreciate them and the impact they have on us all. This competition presents an opportunity for all DP and CP students to show the world their creativity by reflecting on the impact that an IB teacher or coordinator has had on their lives. Be creative and share your IB inspirational story. The grand prize winner will receive a complimentary registration to one of the IB World Student Conferences across the globe, a feature in the IB Global Newsletter, and his or her video will be displayed at all 2017 IB Americas professional development events.
