Filmmaking grant opportunity – March 19 deadline

SOJ alumnus and GolinHarris Executive Vice President Mike Fulton has shared an exciting opportunity for students interested in filmmaking.

GolinHarris, an international public relations firm, is working with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) to identify candidates for a filmmaking grant opportunity. 
NCBA will be awarding film-making grants to three students who will each create their own documentary about how beef gets from our pastures to consumer plates. The videos will be used by NCBA to educate key audiences about how beef is raised.

The program is not open to the general public, so the team is looking for the strongest candidates. The deadline to submit applications is March 19.

Details of the program are included below.
