The Winners of Creativity Marathon 2020
Published on Jan 13, 2021 by Bridgette Cude
High school students from around the world submitted their creative ideas for solutions to UNESCO's Sustainable Development Goals.
At the heart of every degree program, every student organization, and every initiative at Full Sail is creative problem solving. With that spirit in mind, Full Sail held a competition to inspire unique solutions to issues in sustainability, humanitarian needs, equality, and health.
Last November, the Creativity Marathon asked high school students from around the world to come up with creative solutions for UNESCO's Sustainable Development Goals. With the help of some filmmaking lessons from Full Sail, student groups used their skills in storytelling, filmmaking, and collaboration to make three-minute videos demonstrating their ideas.
Thousands of students from the US, Brazil, India, Colombia, and Mexico participated in the Creativity Marathon, making up 711 teams. They entered both regional and global competitions with prizes like a GoPro HERO8 package, complimentary Full Sail Labs, gift cards, and trophies.
On November 21, a virtual awards ceremony was held to announce the regional winners, honorable mentions, and global first prize. Watch the Creativity Marathon awards ceremony below.
