Return to Private: Digital Storytellers

The Kitty Whisperers

The Kitty WhiThe Kitty Whispererssperers, 6th graders Miriam and Jadyn, began a campaign a year ago to help the humane societies humanely respond to the crisis of feral and free roaming cats.     They began by making videos at the Beaver County Humane Society to encourage adoptions.  Their videos were noticed by Faith at the Fluffy Jean Fund who invited them to film a documentary about the Colony Cat Program of Beaver County. The girls worked online to prepare the script then arrived for a day of filming at three different sites.  Camera work and editing were handled by 7th grade brother Nick.  The girls premiered their documentary at the Duquesne University Law Conference on Companion Animals and the Law.


Is there a story of importance that your child wants to tell through a film, game, or app? Projects should celebrate the importance of history today, unique contemporary contributions of students and leaders, or stories that enlarge the imagination, empathy, and generosity of the audience.  Do you know a young person who wants to change the work with digital storytelling? Find out more about applying for a Grow a Generation Research Fellowship.
