Digital storytelling is a process of creating a short movie that combines a script or an original story with various multimedia components, such as images, video, music and a narration, often an author’s own voice. Digital storytelling is an educational technology tool that utilizes skills students are expected to have in the 21st century. Information literacy, visual literacy, being creative and taking risks, and using the latest technology to communicate effectively can all be achieved when students actively participate in the creation process of digital storytelling. Given the benefits of using Digital Storytelling in the classroom, a new and exciting contest has been developed. DISTCO 2010 is part of a series of “Digital Storytelling Contests” hosted by Harmony School of Arts and Technology (HSART) and sponsored by Cosmos Foundation. The contest is open to all K-12 students and teachers at both national and international level. The DISTCO 2010 asks students and teachers to submit their digital stories in a certain time frame and manner for the contest. The competition will be held solely online through this website. The project has certain benefits for both students and teacher. It is a way of exposing and challenging the students in a competition where they can show their certain skills in multimedia, technology, researching, writing and creativity.
