Youth Free Expression Scholarship

Awards Available: 3
Award Deadline: Sep 19, 2022

Every year, the Youth Free Expression Program (YFEP) invites young filmmakers to create a short film on a contemporary First Amendment issue. This year, the topic for the Youth Free Expression Film Contest is WHAT DOES FREE SPEECH MEAN TO ME?

Although it’s a founding principle of the United States, the term “Free Speech” has been used in many different ways by many different people. From limits on what can be taught in schools to arguments over who should be allowed to decide what is allowed on social media, from “cancel culture” and laws infringing on the right to protest, free speech has gotten a lot of attention in recent years. But what does it mean to you–as a student, as a citizen, as a human being?

Create a video (up to 3 minutes) using film, animation, photographs, music, or anything else to explore what free speech means to you–a student, a citizen and a human.

Be thoughtful. Be creative. Be original. Be uncensored.

Need advice or inspiration?

Here are some questions to inspire your film (although these are by no means exhaustive!):

A) How does your right to express yourself–or feeling that you cannot–affect your life?

B) Is there more to free speech than the First Amendment?

C) Does free speech mean speech without consequence?

How To Submit

Upload your film to the YFEP Film Contest page on Film Freeway and include an artist’s statement articulating your film’s message. Any genre of film is accepted, including but not limited to, documentary, music video, narrative, and animation. The contest is free to enter.

Contestants must be either living in the U.S. or its territories (but need not be citizens) and must be age 19 or younger on the day the film is submitted. Films will be judged on content, artistic and technical merit, and creativity. Judges will be drawn from a panel of renowned filmmakers, writers, artists, and activists.

Submission Deadline: September 19, 2022

Awards & Prizes

The first-place winner receives a scholarship to the New York Film Academy (terms and conditions apply). The top three filmmakers (individual or team) will receive cash prizes of $1,000, $500, and $250.

Started in 1942 as the Westinghouse Science Talent Search, the Regeneron Science Talent Search (Regeneron STS) recognizes and empowers our nation’s most promising young scientists who are developing ideas that could solve society’s most urgent challenges.

Each year, nearly 1,900 students enter the Regeneron STS, submitting original research in critically important scientific fields of study. Unique among high school competitions, the Regeneron STS focuses on identifying, inspiring, and engaging the most promising scientists among the nation’s high school seniors.


Interested students must meet all of the eligibility requirements listed below in order to apply to Regeneron STS.

1. Applicants must:

a. be over 13 years of age and have legal parental or guardian consent to submit the application and participate, OR

b. be 18 years of age or older, OR

a. A student (of any citizenship) who is enrolled in and attending the 12th grade/their last year of secondary school (public, private, parochial, or home school) who maintains residence in the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Wake and Midway Islands, or the Marianas, OR

b. Should a student wish to continue work on a team project as an individual, they may only submit the work completed without the original student partner(s).

c. Research conducted alongside adult researchers in a research institution is permitted, but clarity and adequate knowledge of an individual’s role and independence vs. work being done by the collective laboratory throughout the application is vital. Consideration should be given to the extent to which the research qualifies as independent research, given the student and adult responsibilities.
