National Summer Learning Day

The Center for Summer Learning at Johns Hopkins heralds National Summer Learning Day - this Thursday, July 10. "Summer Learning Day is a time for communities across the nation to celebrate the importance of high-quality summer learning opportunities in the lives of young people and their families.

In 2007, Summer Learning Day included 145 registered events in 34 states and a national policy forum in Washington, DC.

This year, we hope to have 300 events nationwide, including a major policy event in Washington, DC, where summer learning leaders from around the country will come to make the case for increased federal investment in summer learning programs. The DC event will also present our first ever 'Champions of Summer Learning' award to three policymakers who have made summer learning a policy priority....

Unleash your creativity and help the Center for Summer Learning communicate how high-quality summer programs shape the lives of young people. Capture yours on video!

Whether created by youths or adults, the videos must demonstrate the power of the summer experience for young people, and communicate why itís essential to fund and support summer learning opportunities, from the youth perspective.

Videos must be no longer than 3 minutes, and submitted no later than July 31."
