The Lincoln County Youth Film Program, begun in 2004, combines education with the art of film-making. The Program is a collaboration between Lincoln County, the Lincoln County School District, and the Northwest Film Center.
Each year, students at local schools write, produce, and direct broadcast quality television commercials, short films, and other public service announcements. Projects have included the Methamphetamine Awareness Project (MAP), the Tsunami Awareness Project (TAP), the Underage Drinking Awareness Project (UDAP), and the Drug Awareness Project (DAP).
Some of the award-winning student products have been
shown on Oregon television stations, as well as having
been sent to other states, Canada, and Italy. One was even featured on ABC World News Tonight. Participating schools have included Career Tech High School, Eddyville Charter School, Newport High School, Siletz Valley School, Taft Middle and High Schools, Toledo Middle and High Schools, and Waldport High School.
In 2007, students at the Siletz Valley School also produced the “No Meth Not Here” banner used as the logo for the Lincoln County Meth Initiative, as well as on many other anti meth publications.
This year features the Prescription Drug Awareness Project (DAP) and Gang Awareness Project (GAP). Participating schools are Career Tech, Siletz Valley, and Newport, Taft, and Toledo High.
