Attention Students: Enter the Benefits of Audio Description in Education (BADIE) Contest

Audio descriptions of movies, video, and other media platforms are vital to the curriculum for students who are blind or visually impaired throughout their educational careers. The BADIE contest is enlisting students to experience media with audio description and then report on their experiences. “Students, tell us what you think about the way the video was described and what impact it had on you.” Contestants have the chance to win prizes – for themselves and their teachers, as well as recognition for their school. Students ages seven through 21 are invited to apply by the application deadline of January 31, 2022. For more information about the contest and how to enter, check out the Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) Listening is Learning (LIL) website listing: Benefits of Audio Description in Education (BADIE).
